Page 53 - To melt this icy breaft o' mine, To take my heart without defign, An* keep it ever. It was a lad wi' yellow hair, Wi' rofy cheeks, an' forehead fair, An* light blue een ; The like o' him on hill or dale, In borough's town, or country vale, Was never feen.
Page 52 - SOLILOQUY. x\.N' fo it feems it is reported, That I hae ne'er been woo'd nor courted, But de'il fpeed lies ; The bonny lads came flocking round me, Enough in confcience to confound me, Like hives of bees. But I was cald as winter fnaw, An' nae return would ever fhaw For a' their favours ; An* now ye fee ye hae been wrang, Nae mair o' me ye'll make a fang, But had ye'r clavers.
