MAKY HAMILTON. See p 118.
Maidment's North Oxmirie, Garland, p. 19.
Then down cam Queen Marie
Wi' gold links in her hair, Saying, " Marie mild, where is the child,
That I heard greet sair sair ? "
" There was nae child wi' me, madam,                 s
There was nae child wi' me ; It was but me in a sair cholic,
When I was like to die."
" I'm not deceived," Queen Marie said,
" No, no, indeed, not I!                                   10
So Marie mild, where is the child ? For sure I heard it cry."
She turned down the blankets fine,
Likewise the Holland sheet, And underneath, there strangled lay                  is
A lovely baby sweet.
