CHILDE VYET.
77
" I will not father my bairn on you,
Nor on no wrongous man, Tho' you'd gie him to his dowry,                 
Five thousand ploughs of land."
Then up did start him Childe Vyet,
Shed by his yellow hair, And gave Lord Ingram to the heart,
A deep wound and a sair.                          uo
Then up did start him Lord Ingram,
Shed by his yellow hair, And gave Childe Vyet to the heart,
A deep wound and a sair.
There was no pity for the two lords,             as
Where they were lying slain, All was for Lady Maiserey :
In that bower she gaed brain!
There was no pity for the two lords,
When they were lying dead,                      ia>
All was for Lady Maiserey : In that bower she went mad !
" 0 get to me a cloak of cloth,
A staff of good hard tree ; If I have been an evil woman,                       vs
I shall beg till I die.
