Sweet Bunch of Daisies

Sweet golden daisies treasured more than gold
Even I hear them whispering love of thee
Murmuring softly In a [sliver them] (theme?)
Of loves bright morning now one sad sweet dream

Sweet bunch of daisies brought from the dell
Kiss me once darling dasies won’t tell
Give me your promise oh sweetheart
Darling I love you will you be true

Sweet withered daisies treasure more than gold
Bring back the memory of those sweet days of old
When we together strolled through forests green
Gathering daisies growing by the stream

The Hazel Dell

In the hazel dell my Nelly’s sleeping
Nellie loved so long
And my lonely, lonely watch am keeping
Nellie lost and gone
Here in moonlight often we have wandered
Though the silent space
Now where leafy branches drooping down
Little Nelly’s laid

All alone my watch am keeping
in the hazel dell
For my darling Nelly’s near me sleeping
Nelly dear farewell

In the hazel dell my Nelly’s sleeping
Where the flowers wave
And the silent stars are nightly weeping
O’er poor Nelly’s grave
Hopes that once my bosom fondly cherish-d
Smile no more for me
Every dream of joy alas has perished
Nellie dear with thee

Now am weary friendless and forsaken
Watching here alone
Nelly thou no more will fondly cheer me
With thy loving tone
Yest forever shall they gentle image
In my memory dwell
And my tears thy lonely grave shall moisten
Nelly dear farewell
