My Own Dark Head
~ Anonymous, Ireland, c.1600

My own dark head (my own, my own)
your soft pale arm place here about me.
Honeymouth that smells of thyme
he would have no heart who denied you love.

There are girls in the town vexed enraged and vexed,
they tear and loosen their hair on the wind
for the dashingest man in this place—myself!
But I’d leave them all for my secret heart.

Lay your head, my own (my own, my own)
your head, my own, lay it here upon me.
Honeymouth that smells of thyme
he would have no heart who denied you love.
