From Jamieson's Popular Ballads and Songs, i. 8.
Childe Maurice hunted i' the silver wood,
He hunted it round about, "And noebody yt he found theren, - Nor noebody without
And tooke his silver eombe in his hand                 s
To kembe his yellow lockes.
He sayes, " come hither, thou litle footpage,
That runneth lowly by my knee; Ffor thou shalt goe to John Steward's wiffe,
And pray her speake with mee.                          10
