Summary - In this love song, a woman tells of her love for the shepherd, who has sailed away across the sea. She tells how she was often with him as he tended the sheep. He was also a skilled hunter of the deer. The woman is so sad that she wishes they had never met, and she knows that she was not the first woman who fell for him.
