HYND HORN.
19
" And I gave to her a silver wand, With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;
With three singing laverocks set thereon, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
''■ What if those diamonds lose their hue,               23
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;
Just when my love begins for to rew,
And the birh and the brume blooms bonnie ? "
" For when your ring turns pale and wan,
With a hey KUelu and a how lo Ian ;                  so
Then I'm in love with another man,
And the birh and the brume blooms bonnie."
He's left the land, and he's gone to the sea, With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;
And he's stayed there seven years and a day, sa And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
Seven lang years he has been on the sea,
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;             ,
And Hynd Horn has looked how his ring may be, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie. *>
But when he looked this ring upon, With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;
The shining diamonds were both pale and wan, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
