The Seeds of Love

from 'Love Songs for Springtime'
Text: Traditional English
Music: Paul Halley

I sowed the seeds of love, and it was all in the spring,
In April, May, and June, likewise, when small birds they do sing;
My garden is well planted with flowers everywhere,
Yet for myself I could not choose the flower that I loved so dear.

My gardener he stood by, I asked him to choose for me,
He chose me the violet, the lily and pink but those I refused all three;
The violet I forsook, because it fades so soon,
The lily and pink I did oer-look, and I vowed Id stay till June.

In June theres a red rosebud, and thats the flower for me!
But oft have I plucked at the red rosebud till I gained the willow tree;
The willow tree will twist, and the willow tree will twine,
Oh! I wish I was in the dear youths arms that once had the heart of mine.

My gardener he stood by, he told me to take great care,
For in the middle of a red rosebud there grows a sharp thorn there,
I told him Id take no care till I did feel the smart,
And often I plucked at the red rosebud till I pierced it to the heart.

Ill make a posy of hyssop, for no other I can touch,
That all the world may plainly see I love one flower too much;
My garden is run wild! Where shall I plant anew -
For my bed, that once was covered with thyme, is all over-run with rue?
