THE TRUMPETER OF FYVIE. '            203
" And east and west, where'er I go,
My love she's always wi' me ; For east and west, where'er I go,
My love she dwells in Fyvie.
" My love possesses a' my heart,                    as
Nae pen can e'er indite her; She's ay sae stately as she goes,
That I see nae mae like her.
" But Tiftie winna gi'e consent
His dochter me to marry,                            «>
Because she has five thousand marks,
And I have not a penny.
"Love,pines away, love d wines away,
Love, love, decays the body; For love o' thee, oh I must die ;                    *
Adieu, my bonny Annie !,"
Her mither raise out o' her bed,
And ca'd on baith her women : " What ails ye, Annie, my dochter dear ?
O Annie, was ye dreamin' ?                         so
" What dule disturb'd my dochter's sleep ?
0 tell to me, my Annie ! " She sighed right sair, and said nae mair,
But, " O for Andrew Lammie!"
