GILDEROT.
And'now this gars mine heart to bleed For my dear Gilderoy.
And whan of me his leave he tuik,
The tears they wat mine ee ;                     m
I gave tull him a parting luik,
" My benison gang wi' thee ! God speid thee weil, mine ain dear heart,
For gane is all my joy; My heart is rent sith we maun part,             ss
My handsome Gilderoy."]
My Gilderoy, baith far and near,
Was fear'd in every toun, And bauldly bare away the gear
Of many a lawland loun.                             «)
Nane eir durst meet him man to man,
He was sae brave a boy ; At length wi' numbers he was tane,
My winsome Gilderoy.
[The Queen of Scots possessed nought 65
That my love let me want, For cow and ew he ' to me brought,'
And een whan they were skant. All these did honestly possess
He never did annoy,                                     ra
Who never fail'd to pay their cess
To my love Gilderoy.]
