He listened at the porch that day,To hear the wheel go on, and on;
And then it stopped, ran back away,While through the door he brought the sun:But now my spinning is all done.2
He sat beside me, with an oathThat love ne'er ended, once begun;
I smiled--believing for us both,What was the truth for only one:And now my spinning is all done.3
My mother cursed me that I heardA young man's wooing as I spun:
Thanks, cruel mother, for that word--For I have, since, a harder known!And now my spinning is all done.4
I thought--O God!--my first-born's cryBoth voices to mine ear would drown:
I listened in mine agony--It was the silence made me groan!And now my spinning is all done.5
Bury me 'twixt my mother's grave,(Who cursed me on her death-bed lone)
And my dead baby's (God it save!)Who, not to bless me, would not moan.And now my spinning is all done.6
A stone upon my heart and head,But no name written on the stone!
Sweet neighbours, whisper low instead,"This sinner was a loving one--And now her spinning is all done."7
And let the door ajar remain,In case he should pass by anon;
And leave the wheel out very plain,--That HE, when passing in the sun,May see the spinning is all done.
