Gently dip: but not too deep

Gently dip, but not too deep;
For fear you make the golden beard to weep.
Fair maiden white and red,
Comb me smooth, and stroke my head:
And thou shalt have some cockle bread.

Gently dip, but not too deep,
For fear thou make the golden beard to weep.
Fair maiden white and red,
Comb me smooth, and stroke my head;
And every hair, a sheaf shall be,
And every sheaf a golden tree.
