" Eobene, tak tent unto my taill,
And wirk all as I reid, And thow sail haif my hairt all haill, as
Eik and my madinheid. Sen God sendis bute for baill,
And for murning remeid, I dern with the bot gif I daill,
Dowbtles I am bot deid."                               «

And ye will meit me heir; Perventure my scheip ma gang besyd,
Quhyll we haif liggit full neir: Bot maugre haif I, and I byd,                          «
Fra they begin to steir; Quhat lyis on hairt I will nocht hyd ;
Makyne, than mak gud cheir."

That lufe will be my bone." " Ga lufe, Makyne, quhair evir thou list, «
For leman I lue none."
