CHILDE MAURICE. See p. 30.
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
