"From Mr. Herd's MS.,transmitted by Mr. Scott"
Lady Maisery was a lady fair,
She made her mother's bed; Auld Ingram was an aged knight,
And her he sought to wed.
" Its I forbid ye, auld Ingram,                          *
For to seek me to spouse; For Lord Wa'yates, your sister's son,
Has been into my bowers.
" Its I forbid ye, auld Ingram,
For to seek me to wed;                               10
For Lord Wa'yates, your sister's son,
Has been into my bed."
