Thou wilt come no more, gentle Annie;
Like a flower thy spirit did depart.
It has gone, alas, like the many
That have bloomed in the winter of my heart.

I shall never more behold thee . . .

-Gap in Tape-

Shall I never more behold thee,
Never hear thy winning voice again?
When the springtime comes, gentle Annie,
And the wildflowers are scattered over the plains.

Also found in Randolph, Vol. IV, #701.
