254 FAIR MARGARET OF CRAIGNARGAT.
The winds and waves did both conspire
Their lives for to devour; That gallant ship that night was lost,
And never was seen more.
When tidings to Craignargat came, 126
Of their sad overthrow, It griev'd her tender parent's heart;
Afresh began their woe.
Of the dreary dream that she had seen,
And often thought upon,— is>
" O fatal news," her mother cries, " My darling, she is gone 1
" O fair Marg'ret, I little thought
The seas should be thy grave, When first thou left thy father's house, 135
Without thy parent's leave."
May this tragedy a warning be
To children while they live, That they may love their parents dear,
Their blessing to receive. '*>
