Twa lovers trysted bi the birk,
The lass had munelicht in her een,
Bit creepin saftly throw the mirk
The waukrife lad had nane.
Warm was his kiss an' strang his airm,
The blin-sicht mowdie turned awa,
Nae lad sae fine could mean her hairm,
Her bridal guest, the hoodie craw.
A lass gaed up the ferny hill,
A gowk came back wi' feint a word;
The cankered worm wis on its broo
An in its wame, the yird.
