138 LORD JAMIE DOUGLAS.
But when lords and lairds come through this toun,
And gentlemen o' a high degree, I must sit alane intill the dark, %
And the babie on the nurse's knee.
I had a nurse, and she was fair;
She was a dearly nurse to me; She took my gay lord frae my side,
And used him in her companie. «
Awa, awa, thou fause Blackwood, Aye, and an ill death may thou die ! - Thou wert the first and occasion last Of parting my gay lord and me.
"When I lay sick, and very sick, «
Sick I was and like to die, A gentleman, a friend of mine,
He came on purpose to visit me; But Blackwood whisper'd in my lord's ear
He was ower lang in chamber with me. so
When I was sick, and very sick,
Sick I was and like to die, I drew me near to my stairhead,
And I heard my ain lord lichtly me.
