I've seen the forest adorned the foremost
With flowers of the fairest, baith pleasant and gay ;
Sae bonny was their blooming! their seent the air perfuming ! But now they are wither'd and a' wede away.
3-I've seen the morning with gold the hills adorningj
And the loud tempest roaring before parting day; I've seen Tweed's silver streams, glittering in the sunny beams,
Grow drumly and dark as they roll'd on their way.
(), fickle Fortune, why this cruel sporting ?
O why thus perplex us, poor sons of a day ? 1 hy frown cannot fear me, thy smile cannot cheer me;
Since the Flowers of the Forest are a' wede away.
H. 4S68.
