I swear by the hawthorn tree

I swear by the hawthorn tree – I’ll love you till the end.

You are the fairest maid I’ve seen,

This love is heaven-sent.

I swear by the hawthorn tree – my heart shalt not be changed,

I’ll love you till the stars are blind,

Though you might find this strange.

I swear by the hawthorn tree- to me you are as rare

As damask’d rose, as whitest pearl,

That blooms and shines out there.

I swear by the hawthorn tree – to you I shall be true.

By all the Faerie lights, my love,

I promise this to you.

I swear by the hawthorn tree – and swear I not in vain –

For you are mine, as I am yours-

We’ll rule the Faerie lands.

I swear by the hawthorn tree- by whitest blooms of May:

A year and a day from now

Together we’ll remain.

I swear by the hawthorn tree, by ash and oak, and yew-

That wildwood dark and flower fair

Shall see our vows renewed!
