MOORLAND MARY, From Ifrs. Sterndale's Panorama of Youth. ."Nvi!h jet-black eyes, and sloe-black hair; With cheeks so red, and round arms bare; And teeth so white, and dimpled chin And bosom fair, and pure within; And small straw hat, so loosely tied, And rushy basket at her side Quite full with berries red and blue, And heather buds of many a hue, And steps as light as any fairy, 1 met the little Moorland Mary. If you sweet girl will go with me, My little serving maid to be, And those soft notes you sweetly sung Repeat them to my nursling yonug; And leave these hills, so bleak and wild To watch and tend my darling child To cherish her I fondly love, And tender, true, and faithful prove; And o'er her infant steps be wary l'It treasure you, sweet Moorlaud Mary.' Oh Lady, listen to my tale, And let my simple words prevail; My mother's oldâslw's old and poor, And seairce can totter to the door; And me she loves* her only joy She has no other girl or boy. Ah! whilst she loves, with her I II stay, But think of yoM, when far away 8he says the grave will rest the weary, .fr&d then I'll be your Moorland Mary."
