" The linnet is a honnie bird,                                   125
And aften flees far frae its nest; So all the world may plainly see
They 're far awa that I love best!"
She looked out at her father's window,
To take a view of the countrie;                       iso
Who did she see but Jamie Douglas, And along with him her children three.
There came a soldier to the gate,
And he did knock right hastilie: " If Lady Douglas be within,                                   135
Bid her come down and speak to me."
." 0 come away, my lady fair,
Come away, now, alang with me:
For I have hanged fause Blackwood
At the very place where he told the lie." 1*
