400 ROSE THE RED AND WHITE LILLIE.
" If a' be true that ye ha'e said,
And tauld just now to me; Ye're welcome, welcome, every one,
Your master I will be. 100
" Now ye shall eat as I do eat,
And lye as I do lye; Ye salna wear nae waur claithing
Nor my young men and I."
Then they went to a ruinous house, las
And there they enter'd in; And Nicholas fed wi' Robin Hood,
And Roger wi' little John.
But it fell ance upon a day,
They were at the putting-stane; no
Whan Rose the Red she view'd them a',
As they stood on the green.
She hit the stane then wi' her foot,
And kep'd it wi' her knee ; And spaces three aboon them a', in
I wyte she gaiM it flee.
She sat her back then to a tree,
And ga'e a loud Ohon ! A lad spak in the companie,
" I hear a woman's moan." 120
" How know you that, young man," she said,
" How know you that o' me ? Did e'er ye see me in that place
A'e foot my ground to flee ?
