A poem from Lois Duncan's book...?

Theres this poem stuck in my head from the book Killing Mr. Griffin. But I can't seem to remember the rest. I know it has part like these.

" Willow, willow by the brook,

Trailing fingers green and long,

and the ending is

Water, water cold and deep,

hold me fast that I may sleep.

for death with you is hardly more,

Than the little deaths before."

I really like that poem but I can remember the whole thing. First one who can find the whole thing or write it here gets 10 points!

    Where the daisies laugh and blow,

    Where the willow leaves hang down,

    Nonny, nonny, I will go

    There to weave my lord a crown.

    Willow, willow, by the brook,

    Trailing fingers green and long,

    I will read my lord a book,

    I will sing my lord a song.

    Though he turn his face away,

    Nonny, nonny, still I sing,

    Ditties of a heart gone gray

    And a hand that bears no ring.

    Water, water, cold and deep,

    Hold me fast that I may sleep.

    Death with you is hardly more

    Than the little deaths before.
