In the shadow of the willow tree
She sat down that afternoon
And she smiled and closed her eyes a while
On the warmest day of June

And she hadn't yet laid eyes on him
On the footpath going home
Her whole life hadn't yet been stirred
She was still in peace alone

And the hands she later got to hold
She had yet not felt their touch
And she didn't know the name of him
Who she came to love so much

In the shadow of the willow tree
On the 21:st of June
She had yet not heard him say goodbye
She had yet not been alone
