Baith dae and rae, and harte and hinde, And of a' wilde bestis great plentie;
He heard the bows that bauldly ring, And arrows whidderan' hym near bi.
Of that feir castell he got a sight; es
The like he neir saw wi' his ee ! On the fore front o' that castell feir,
Twa unicorns were gaye to see ; The picture of a knight, and ladye bright,
And the grene hollin abune their brie. w

They were a' in ae livery clad,
O' the Lincome grene sae gaye to see.

And I wot they rank'd right bonnilie: Thereby Boyd kend he was master man,
And served him in his ain degre. so
63, Scott, bhios: Aytoun, bows.
