Desdemona's song from Othello, also known as The Willow Song, from my Songs from Shakespeare.

This is taken pretty much directly from the melody as it appears in several old books.  It's no doubt very old.

Score display with software-generated audio file as a demo available at Musescore The poor soul sat sighing by a sycamore tree.

The lyrics are in the score.
