Not illustrated. 1869 edition. Excerpt: ...count the lawin, And bring a coggie mair. A a There's wealth and ease for gentlemen, And semple-folk maun fecht and fen; But here we're a' in ae accord, For ilka man that's drunk's a lord. Then guidwife count, &c. My coggie is a haly pool, That heals the wounds o' care and dool; And pleasure is a wanton trout, An' ye drink it a', ye'll find him out. Then guidwife count, &c IT IS NA, JEAN, THY BONIE FACE. IT is na, Jean, thy bonie face, Nor shape that I admire, Altho' thy beauty and thy grace Might weel awauk desire. Something in ilka part o' thee To praise, to love, I find, But dear as is thy form to me, Still dearer is thy mind. Nae mair ungen'rous wish I hae, Nor stronger in my breast, Than, if I canna mak thee sae, At least to see thee blest. Content am I, if Heaven shall give But happiness to thee: And as wi' thee I'd wish to live, For thee I'd bear to die. WHA IS THAT AT MT. BOWER DOOR? WHA is that at my bower door? O wha is it but Findlay: Then gae your gate ye'se nae be here! Indeed maun I, quo' Findlay. What mak ye sae like a thief? O come and see, quo' Findlay; Before the morn ye'll work mischief; Indeed will I, quo' Findlay. Gif I rise and let you in, Let me in, quo' Findlay j Ye'll keep me waukin wi' your din; Indeed will I, quo' Findlay. In my bower if ye should stay, Let me stay, quo' Findlay; I fear ye'll bide till break o' day; Indeed will I, quo' Findlay. Here this night if ye remain, I'll remain, quo' Findlay; I dread ye'll learn the gate again; Indeed will I, quo' Findlay. What may pass within this bower, Let it pass, quo' Findlay; Ye maun conceal till your last hour! Indeed will I, quo' Findlay. THE BONIE WEE THING. BONIE wee thing, canie wee thing, Lovely wee thing was thou mine; I wad wear thee in my bosom, Least more
