298 BLANCHEFLOUR AND JELLYFLORICE.
The queen she call'd her stable groom, To come to her right seen;                                       ro
Says," Ye'll take out yon wild waith steed, And bring him to the green.
" Ye'll take the bridle frae his head,
The lighters frae his e'en; Ere she ride three times roun' the cross,                 n
Her weel days will be dune."
Jellyflorice his true love spy'd,
As she rade roun' the cross; And thrice he kiss'd her lovely lips,
And took her frae her horse.                                    m
" Gang to your bower, my lily flower,
For a' my mother's spite; There's nae other amang her maids,
In whom I take delight.
" Ye are my jewel, and only ane,                               *
Nane's do you injury ; For ere this-day-month come and gang,
My wedded wife ye'se be."
