LADY MAEJOEIK.
341
And wi' the little life that was in her, She hearken'd to it full weel.                                  n
But when he came into the place,
He lap unto the wa'; He thought to get a kiss o' her bonnie lips,
But her body fell in twa !
" O vow ! O vow 1 O vow !" he said,                      n
" O vow 1 but ye've been cruel : Ye've taken the timber out of my ain wood,
And burnt my ain dear jewel !
" Now for thy sake, Lady Marjorie,
I'll burn baith father and mother ;                       
And for thy sake, Lady Marjorie,
Til burn baith sister and brother.
" And for thy sake, Lady Marjorie,
I'll burn baith kith and kin; But I'll aye remember the pretty little boy 85
That did thy errand rin."
