The flaunting flow’rs our gardens yield,
High shelt’ring woods and wa’s maun shield;
But thou, beneath the random bield
 O’ clod or stane,
Adorns the histie stibble field,
 Unseen, alane.


There, in thy scanty mantle clad,
Thy snawie bosom sun-ward spread,
Thou lifts thy unassuming head
 In humble guise;
But now the share uptears thy bed,
 And low thou lies!


Such is the fate of artless maid,
Sweet flow’ret of the rural shade!
By love’s simplicity betray’d,
 And g...Read More

...peacefu’ rose its ingle reek,
 That, slowly curling, clamb the hill.
But now the cot is bare and cauld,
 Its leafy bield for ever gane,
And scarce a stinted birk is left
 To shiver in the blast its lane.”


“Alas!” quoth I, “what ruefu’ chance
 Has twin’d ye o’ your stately trees?
Has laid your rocky bosom bare—
 Has stripped the cleeding o’ your braes?
Was it the bitter eastern blast,
 That scatters blight in early spring?
Or was’t the wil’fire scorch’d their boughs...Read More

...y airt,
 I’d shelter thee, I’d shelter thee;
Or did Misfortune’s bitter storms
 Around thee blaw, around thee blaw,
Thy bield should be my bosom,
 To share it a’, to share it a’.


Or were I in the wildest waste,
 Sae black and bare, sae black and bare,
The desert were a Paradise,
 If thou wert there, if thou wert there;
Or were I Monarch o’ the globe,
 Wi’ thee to reign, wi’ thee to reign,
The brightest jewel in my Crown
 Wad be my Queen, wad be my Queen....Read More

Around thee blaw, around thee blaw,

by Kipling, Rudyard
...goes back to the weary wife
 And ever she sends more.

For since that wife had gate or gear,
 Or hearth or garth or bield,
She willed her sons to the white harvest,
 And that is a bitter yield.

She wills her sons to the wet ploughing,
 To ride the horse of tree,
And syne her sons come back again
 Far-spent from out the sea.

The good wife's sons come home again
 With little into their hands,
But the lore of men that ha' dealt with men
 In the new and naked lands;...Read More

...an hoor in ilka day
For luve and sang.

And canty hearts are strangely steeled.
By some dikeside they'll find a bield,
Some couthy neuk by muir or field
They're sure to hit,
Where, frae the blatherin' wind concealed,
They'll rest a bit.

An' weel for them if kindly fate
Send ower the hills to them a mate;
They'll crack a while o' kirk an' State,
O' yowes an' rain:
An' when it's time to take the gate,
Tak' ilk his ain.
