She cast a pebble on the water crying
The sun was rising on the hill
She had a purple rose she crumpled in her fist
And threw the petals on the reeds where they first kissed

The miller boy he had green eyes
He never noticed her that much
She walked towards him from the foggy morning mist
She wished to be among the reeds where they first kissed

She told him that she dreamt of him all these nights
He didn't even turn his head
And while she cried he jumped and grabbed her by the wrist
He stripped her down there by the reeds where they first kissed

The water showed her no reflection
The cypresses all looked away
She had her bloodstained handkerchief inside her fist
She lost herself down by the reeds where they first kissed
