Over the garden's battle-ground,
And lovely ladies crowd out to see
The long procession of victory.

Yet, to me, less glorious
Garden-beds and orchard-trees!

Binds you now for ever mine,
O my Love, my Valentine.

There's many here about,
And often when I go to plough,
The ploughshare turns them out;
For many thousand men, said he,
Were slain in the great victory.

For there's many here about;
And often when I go to plough,
The ploughshare turns them out!
