First printed in a complete form in Maidmenfa North Countrie Garland, p. 24. The same editor con­tributed a slightly different copy to Motherwell's Min­strelsy, (p. 173.) An inferior version is furnished by Buchan, i. 234, and Jamieson has published a frag­ment on the same story, here given in the Appendix.
Lord Ingkam and Childe Vyet, Were both born in ane bower,
Had both their loves on one Lady, The less was their honour.
Childe Vyet and Lord Ingram, Were both born in one hall,
Had both their loves on one Lady The worse did them befall.
4. The less was their bonheur. Motherwell.
