OLD BALLADS. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 1 September 1910
: OLD BALLADS. 11. The ballads given below have not mien brought together for close comparison. If that had : been intended specimens with: like stories would have been chosen from the various countries. But that would, have meant a certain monotony. ' Brevity, also, had to be considered. Irish traditional ballads ai-e not easy to choose for readers in general, as many are either written in the original language of the country or have lines and. phrases in that language. 'Irish Molly' is classed with street ballads — that is, those written and printed in the first place for sale, by city vendors; who sang verses by way of specimen. Through being printed, the street ballads commonly kept closer to their original form than those which grew up in the waj' already outlined among rural folk. Probably 'Irish, Molly ' is the most modern of the ballads here cited, and the Spanish the oldest, with the Scottish, English, and Scandinavian in between in something like that order.

Yet she, being 003', would not believe That he did love her so, .Nor would she any countenance Unto this young man show. But when his friends did understand His fond and foolish mind, They sent him up to fair London, . An apprentice him to bind. And now he's gone 'tis seven long years, And never his love could see: 'O many a tear have I shed for her sake, When; she little thought of me.' One day the maids of Islington Went forth to sport and play; And then the bailiff's daughter dear, She secretly stole away. She pull'd off her pretty gown of pink, And put on ragged attire, And to fair London she would go, For her true love to inquire. And as she went along the road, The weather being hot and diV. She sat her down on a grassy bank, And her true love came riding by. She started up with a colour so red, '...
