334 SWEET WILLIE AND FAIR MAISKY.
Then he's ta'en up his little young son, <s
And kiss'd him cheek and chin; And he is on to his mother,
As fast as he could gang.
" Ye will take in my son, mother,
Gi'e him to nurses nine ; »
Three to wauk, and three to sleep,
And three to gang between."
Then he has left his mother's house,
And frae her he has gane ; And he is back to his lady, tm
And safely brought her hame.
Then in it came her father dear,
Was belted in a brand; " It's nae time for brides to lye in bed,
When the bridegroom's send's in town. 60
" There are four-and-twenty noble lords
A' lighted on the green ; The fairest knight amang them a',
He must be your bridegroom."
" 0 wha will shoe my foot, my foot V ss
And wha will glove my hand ? And wha will prin my sma' middle,
Wi' the short prin and the lang V "
Now out it speaks him, sweet Willie,
Who knew her troubles best; ">
" It is my duty for to serve,
As I'm come here as guest.
