LORD EANDAL.

Is na your hawk on my perch tree,
Just perching for his prey ? And isna yoursel in my arms twa;               &

And dear gin it were day ! Gin it were day, and I were away,

And dear gin it were day ! For he that's in bed wi' anither man's wife,
Has never lang time to stay."

He gar'd cald iron gae; And I hope ilk ane sail sae be serv'd,
That treats an honest man sae !                no
