LONG LONKIN. See p. 94.
From Richardson's Borderer's Table-Book, viii. 410.
The lord said to his ladie,
As he mounted hia horse, " Beware of Long Lonkin
That lies in the moss."
The lord said to his ladie,                          «
As he rode away, " Beware of Long Lonkin
That lies in the clay."
" What care I for Lonkin,
Or any of his gang ?                             w
My doors are all shut
And my windows penned in."
There are six little windows,
And they were all shut, But one little window,                              is
And that was forgot.
