yi. Lord Ingram and Childe Vyet
E RD INGRAM and Childe Vyet Were both born in one hall; Laid both their hearts on one lady ; The worse did them befall.
ii Lord Ingram woo'd Lady Maisry
From father and from mother; Lord Ingram woo'd Lady Maisry
From sister and from brother;
in Lord Ingram woo'd Lady Maisry
With leave of all her kin ; And every one gave full consent,
But she said ' no ' to him.
Now it fell out, upon a day She was dressing of her head,
That in did come her father dear, Wearing the gold so red.
' Get up now, Lady Maisry, Put on your wedding-gown ;
For Lord Ingram he will be here, Your wedding must be done.'—
' I'd rather be Childe Vyet's wife,
The white fish for to sell, Before I were Lord Ingram's wife, To wear the silk so well. 232
