5i.—ONE MICHAELMAS MORN.
1 One Michaelmas morn I woke in a fright, I rose in the dawn before it was light, I rose, &c.
2   I sat myself down the world to admire.
And saw the ripe blackberries on the green briar, And saw, &c.
3   And when I walked further, I chanc-ed to see A cow and a pretty maid under a tree,
A cow, &c.
4   I stepp'd to the damsel and to her said I,
UA penn'orth of milk, if you please, for I'm dry," A penn'orth of milk, &c.
5   "Look yonder," she answered, "the cow with black tail Has spilt all the milk and kicked over the pail,"
Has spilt all the milk, &c.
