How can you turn this poem on its head?  See here:

By the waterfalls of Ilkley

     My love and I did meet.

Her eyes were filled with loveliness;

     Her cherry lips were sweet.


She warned me not to love her,

     With a warning so severe,

But my heart told me otherwise

     And my ears, they didn’t hear.


In spring, beneath the cherry trees

     I looked at her again.

To tell me not to fall for her

     Was to tell me quite in vain.


She warned me not to love her -

     Her words were loud and clear -

But now I’m standing by the river

     And without my Ruby dear.
