And scho has taine out a little pen-knife,
And low down by her gair; Scho has twin'd the zong thing and his life; i*
A word he nevir spak mair.
And out and cam the thick thick bluid,
And out and cam the thin ; And out and cam the bonny herts bluid:
Thair was nae life left in.                            20
Scho laid him on a dressing borde,
And drest him like a swine, And laughing said, " Gae nou and pley
With zour sweit play-feres nine."
Scho rowd him in a cake of lead,                  a
Bade him lie stil and sleip ; Scho cast him in a deip draw-well,
Was fifty fadom deip.
Quhan bells wer rung, and mass was sung, And every lady went hame,                        ao
Then ilka lady had her zong sonne, Bot Lady Helen had nane.
Scho rowd hir mantil hir about,
And sair sair gan she weip, And she ran into the Jewis castel,                 as
Quhan they wer all asleip. vol. in.                     10
