• I looked northward when in despair,
    And it was there that I did find
    Ohark! my heart! I could not bear.
    O Fate! thou art so kind!

    O! Could it be! a maiden I see
    There by river's end?
    On this creature so fine
    The heavens did shine!
    Was it there thou has descend?

    Her face, so fine!
    Her eyes they shine
    For everyone to see.
    On, I stare
    'Twas it so rare!
    To find such beauty?

    Love in the air
    O Fate! thou art fair!
    But dare I cross the line?
    I came to thee
    And knelt a knee
    And quote "Wouldst thou be mine?"
