THE TOTING TAMLjLNE.                   113
And when she came to Carterhaugh, ss
She gaed beside the well; And there she saw the steed standing,
But away was himsell.
She hadna pu'd a double rose,
A rose but only twae,                                        so
When up and started young Tamlane,
Says—" Lady, thou pu's nae mae!
" Why pu' ye the rose, Janet, Within this garden grene, And a' to kill the bonny babe, .                    w
That we got us between ? "
" The truth ye'll tell to me, Tamlane; A word ye mauna lie ; Gin e'er ye was in haly chapel, Or sained in Christentie ? "—                    ico
"The truth I'll tell to thee, Janet, A word I winna lie; A knight me got, and a lady me bore, As well as they did thee.
" Randolph, Earl Murray, was my sire, ioj Dunbar, Earl March, is thine ; We loved when we were children small, Which yet you well may mind.
