PAIR FLOWER OP NORTHUMBERLAND. 183
Two gallant steeds, both good and able, Follow, my love, come over the strand,
She likewise took out of the stable,
To ride with the knight into fair Scotland, m
And to the jaylor she sent this ring, Follow, my love, come over the strand,
The knight from prison forth ' to' bring, To wend with her into fair Scotland.
This token set the prisoner free,                        es
Follow, my love, come over the strand,
Who straight went to this fair lady, To wend with her into fair Scotland.
A gallant steed he did bestride,
Follow, my love, come over the strand,           70
And with the lady away did ride,
And she the fair Flower of Northumberland.
They rode till they came to a water clear, Follow, my love, come over the strand,
" Good Sir, how should I follow you here, ii And I the fair Flower of Northumberland ?
" The water is rough and wonderful deep, Follow, my love, come over the strand,
And on my saddle I shall not keep,
And I the fair Flower of Northumber­land."                                                              to
