' Another may I'll marry nane, Another may I'll ne'er bring hame.'
But sighing says his bonnie.wife, '1 wish this was an end o' my life !
' Yet gae ye unto your mither again, That vile rank witch of vilest kind :
' And say: My ladie has a girdle, It's a' red gowd unto the middle.
' And ay at every silver hem Hangs fifty silver bells and ten.
' That goodlie gift shall be your ain,
But let her be lighter o' her young bairn.'—
' O' her young bairn she 's ne'er be lighter, Nor in her bower to shine the brighter :
xxv ' But she shall die and turn to clay, And you shall wed another may.'—
' Another may I'll never wed nanc, Another may I'll never bring hame.'
But sighing says his bonnie wife,
' I wish this was an end o' my life! '
Then out and spake the Billy Blind —
He spake aye in a good time;
Billy Blind] a Brownie, or friendly House-spirit. 38
