A bourich o preens
That's quick tae fleg;
Twa bitticks o' een
An a wee, wee neb;
Come scooshlin oot, wi the starry mune
Fin whins are dark an the walks are teem.
Far they come frae, naebody kens,
Jinkin awa frae the sicht o men
An for their coortin', I maun suppose,
They rub their snoots like Eskimos!
