Page 20 - Wi' a bonny, bonny lassie, When the kye comes hame. Then since all Nature joins In this love without alloy, O, wha wad prove a traitor To Nature's dearest joy ? Or wha wad choose a crown, Wi' its perils and its fame, And miss his bonny lassie, When the kye comes hame.
Page 21 - Draps down, and thinks nae shame To woo his bonnie lassie When the kye comes hame. See yonder pawkie shepherd That lingers on the hill — His ewes are in the fauld, And his lambs are lying still; Yet he downa gang to bed, For his heart is in a flame To meet his bonnie lassie When the kye comes hame.
Page 19 - COME all ye jolly shepherds That whistle through the glen, I'll tell ye of a secret That courtiers dinna ken : What is the greatest bliss That the tongue o' man can name ? 'Tis to woo a bonny lassie When the kye comes hame.
Page 20 - There the blackbird bigs his nest For the mate he loes to see, And on the topmost bough, O, a happy bird is he; Where he pours his melting ditty, And love is a' the theme, And he'll woo his bonny lassie When the kye comes hame.
Page 109 - Yardbire and his two prisoners; the rest of his conversation was to Corby, whom he forthwith pushed on by spur and flattery to the camp.

Page 26 - Demigod ! What shall appal thee ? Javel, or Devil, or how shall we call thee ? Thine the night voices of joy and of weeping, The "whisper awake, and the vision when sleeping: The bloated kings of the earth shall brood On princedoms and provinces bought with blood, Shall slubber, and snore, and to-morrow's breath Shall order the muster and march of death: The trumpets shall sound, and the gonfalons flee, And thousands of souls step home to thee. Speed thee, speed thcc, &c.
Page 3 - ... family. In court and camp, feats of arms were the topic of conversation, and the only die that stamped the character of a man of renown, either with the fair, the monarch, or the chiefs of the land. No gentleman of noble blood would pay his addresses to his mistress, until he had broken a spear with the knights of the rival nation, surprised a strong-hold, or driven a prey from the kinsmen of the Piercies, the Musgraves, or the Howards.

Page 20 - And love is a' the theme, And he'll woo his bonny lassie When the kye comes hame.

Page 26 - Speed thee, speed thcc, &c. The warrior shall dream of battle begun, Of field-day and foray, and foeman undone ; Of provinces sacked, and warrior store, Of hurry and havoc, and hampers of ore ; Of captive maidens for joys abundant, And ransom vast when these grow redundant. Hurray ! for the foray. Fiends ride forth a scaling, For the dogs of havock are yelping and yowling.
Page 75 - Now therefore know and consider what thou wilt do: for evil is determined against our master and against all his household; for he is such a son of Belial that a man cannot speak to him.
