Effie's Garden


Lilies of yellow and red

Slumber under the snow

My Effie remains

Further below


Once spring was denied

Winter held sway

Once in this garden

We were betrayed


Her garden


We were singing psalms

When the Dundee's men appeared

I took three for her

Till five lay here


Now spring arrives

The solemn valley blooms

Her garden is alive

With flowers and shoots


Her garden


Two names are carved

On a single grey stone

My love remains
