Songs from ‘An Island in The Moon’
XIII. Leave, O leave me to my sorrows
LEAVE, 1 O leave me to my sorrows;
Here I’ll sit and fade away,
Till I’m nothing but a spirit,
And I lose this form of clay.
Then if chance along this forest        5
Any walk in pathless ways,
Thro’ the gloom he’ll see my shadow
Hear my voice upon the breeze.
Note 1. XIII] Sung by Miss Gittipin, MS., chap. xi. [back]
