THE COUBTEOUS KNIGHT. 273
" If that ye dee for me, sir knight,
Few for you will make meen; For mony gude lord's done the same,
Their graves are growing green." 20
" 0 winna ye pity me, fair maid, O winna ye pity me ?
0 winna ye pity a courteous knight, Whose love is laid on thee ? "
" Ye say ye are a courteous knight, 26
But I think ye are nane;
1 think ye're but a miliar bred, By the color o' your claithing.
" You seem to be some false young man,
You wear your hat sae wide; 30
You seem to be some false young man, You wear your boots sae side."
" Indeed I am a courteous knight,
And of great pedigree; Nae knight did mair for a lady bright as
Than I will do for thee.
" 0 I'll put smiths in your smithy,
To shoe for you a steed; And I'll put tailors in your bower,
To make you for a weed. «
" I will put cooks in your kitchen,
And butlers in your ha'; And on the tap o' your father's castle,
I'll big gude corn and saw."
