258 LORD BEICHAN AND SUSIE PYE.
Then up bespak the skipper bold,
For he could speak the Turkish tongue, wo
" Lord Beichan lives not far away; This is the day of his wedding."
" If ye will guide me to Beichan's yetts, I will ye well reward," said she,
Then she and all her pages went, iss
A very gallant companie.
When she cam to Lord Beichan's yetts,
She tirl'd gently at the pin; Sae ready was the proud porter
To let the wedding guests come in. i«
" Is this Lord Beichan's house," she says,
" Or is that noble lord within ? " " Yes, he is gane into the hall,
With his brave bride and monie ane."
" Ye'U bid him send me a piece of bread, i«
Bot and a cup of his best wine; And bid him mind the lady's love
That ance did lowse him out o' pyne."
Then in and cam the porter bold,
I wat he gae three shouts and three, is>
" The fairest lady stands at your yetts That ever my twa een did see."
Then up bespak the bride's mither, I wat an angry woman was she,
" You micht hae excePYEd our bonnie bride, iss Tho' she'd been three times as fair as she."
