His Last Mistress: The Duke of Monmouth and Lady Henrietta Wentworth [Kindle Edition] Andrea Zuvich

“Oh Lord, where is my husband now –
Where once he stood beside me?
His body lies in Sedgemoor
In grave of oak and ivy;
Come tell me you who beat the drum,
Why am I mistreated?
To stand alone, a traitor’s wife,
My will to live defeated.
He swore to me he would be gone
For days but two and twenty –
And yet, in seven years and more
his bed lies cold and empty.”
 Folk ballad, circa 1692
