Winter winds blew loud and cauld at our parting;
Fears for my Willie brought tears to my e'e ; Welcome now, simmer, and welcome, my Willie,
The simmer to nature, and Willie to me.
Rest, ye wild storms, in the caves of your slumbers;
How your dread howling a lover alarms ! Wauken, ye breezes! row gently, ye billows !
And waft my dear laddie ance mair to my arms.
4-But, oh ! if he's faithless, and minds na his Nannie,
Flow still between us, thou wide roaring main ! May I never see it, may I never trow it,
But, dying, believe that my Willie's my ain !
H. 4868.
