DESCRIPTION: "The day is hot, we will leave the spot, And together we will roam, We'll find a spot in some cooler cot Within fair Buren's grove. Each morning fair to take the air I walked to Buren's Grove"
EARLIEST DATE: 1960 (Creighton-SNewBrunswick)
FOUND IN: Canada(Mar)
REFERENCES (1 citation):
Creighton-SNewBrunswick 10, "Buren's Grove" (1 fragment, 1 tune)
NOTES: The [above] description is all of the Creighton-SNewBrunswick fragment.
It seems a shame to make a separate entry for so brief a fragment. It is tempting to include it under "Bordon's Grove" (Roud #2322) but there are no common lines. The note in Henry regarding the relationship of Creighton-SNewBrunswick 10 and Henry H529 describes Creighton's entry as "too short to say that it is the same with any certainty." Henry p.324 - BS
