Clare: Music

She Moved Through the Fair

(Clare on Mortal Daze)
My young love said to me,
My mother won't mind
And me father won't slight you
For your lack of kine
And she stepped away from me
And this she did say
It will not be long love
Til our wedding day
She stepped away from me
And moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here and move there
Then she went her way homeward
With one star awake
As the swan in the evening
Moves over the lake
Ah the people were saying
No two were ere wed
But one has a sorrow
That never was said
And she smiled as she passed with her goods and her gear
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear
I dreamed it last night
That my young love came in
So softly she entered
Her feet made no din
She lay down beside me
And this she did say
It will not be long now
Til our wedding day.
