THOMAS THE RHYMER
' My tongue is my am,' true Thomas he said;
' A gudely gift ye wad gie to me ! I neither dought to buy or sell
At fair or tryst where I might be.
' I dought neither speak to prince or peer,
Nor ask of grace from fair ladye!'—
' Now haud thy peace, Thomas,' she said,
' For as I say, so must it be.'
He has gotten a coat of the even cloth, And a pair o' shoon of the velvet green;
And till seven years were gane and past, True Thomas on earth was never seen.
