A Man Of Double Deed

Traditional

Anon


There was a man of double deed,
who sowed his garden full of seed.
When the seed began to grow,
`Twas like a garden full of snow;
when the snow began to fall,
like birds it was upon the wall;
and when the birds began to fly,
`Twas like a shipwreck in the sky;
and when the sky began to crack,
`Twas like a stick upon my back;
and when my back began to smart,
`Twas like a penknife in my heart;
and when my heart began to bleed,
then i was dead and dead indeed.
