The Three Fountains

Three stars in the azure Heavens appear,
Brightly they shine and fair to see;
On the plain upspring three fountains clear,
And beside them stand fair Ladies three:
A Wife, a Widow, a Maiden young,
And soft to the murmuring water they sung.

At one stand the Wife, and tremblingly,
While she lifted its waters, there spoke she.

'Those fount, whence the purest waters roll!
O Say, shall I sweeten my husband's life?
And while tender and faithful is my soul
Shall I then be a blest & a happy wife?'

"Whilst those canst the robes of virtue boast,
"To live with thee shall be sweetest bliss;
"But should thy faith & love be lost,
"Farewell for aye to thy happiness."

At the next stood the Widow, sad and lone
And weeping, thus she made her moan.

'Ah hapless wretch! for what dark deed
Of mine have I lost my husband dear
Has God to punish my guilt sins decreed
To darken my life with sorrow drear?'
