Wappenbury Woods
  Through Wappenbury Woods we walked,
My love, my love and I
Through canopies so dense at times
We could not see the sky.

Through Wappenbury Woods we talked,
We talked, my love and I
Of trivia and sweet romance
To mellow out the sigh.

Through Wappenbury woods we sought,
My love, my love and I
For a place to become special
When from the world we fly.

At Wappenbury woods we gazed,
We gazed, my love and I
Across the fields of golden wheat
To where land touches sky.

'Til from Wappenbury Woods we drove,
My love, my love and I
To carry on the tasks ahead,
If not to succeed, at least to try.

this has a beautiful appearance, and is extremely well planned and formed, with the long elegant first lines and the nice smooth rhythm ..This is very romantic, and reminds me of keats, wordsworth, shelley or somebody of that smoothness and stature ... it is very very romantic and stanza two and four are dynamite poetry ... 00)

Synopsis
A rather basic ballad - not traditional in the sense of a set chorus - but quite melodic, I think and with a firm structure and rhyme scheme and repetitive phrases which I think defines it as a ballad.
