If I could but see the white cap,
And the earnest mourner worn to leanness! -
My toiled heart is worn with grief!
f I could but see the white [lower] dress! -
My heart is wounded with sadness!
I should be inclined to go and live with the wearer!
If I could but see the white knee-covers! -
Sorrow is knotted in my heart!
I should almost feel as of one soul with the wearer!
