HYND HOKN.
21
" Into the bride-bed she winna gang,
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;                    m
Till she hears tell of her ain Hynd Horn, And the' birk and the brume blooms bonnie."
" Wilt thou give to me thy begging coat ?
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ; And I'll give to thee my scarlet cloak,                  ft
And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
"Wilt thou give to me thy begging staff?
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ; And I'll give to thee my good gray steed,
And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie." m
The auld beggar man cast off his coat, With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;
And he's ta'en up the scarlet cloak,
And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
The auld beggar man threw down his staff, a>
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian; And he has mounted the good gray steed, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
The auld beggar man was bound for the mill,
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;                    a>
But young Hynd Horn for the King's hall, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
