The blue-eyed Lassie

I GAED a waefu' gate yestreen,
A gate, I fear, I'll dearly rue;
I gat my death frae twa sweet een,
Twa lovely e’en o' bonie blue.
'Twas not her golden ringlets bright,
Her lips like roses, wat wi' dew,
Her heaving bosom, lily-white,
It was her een sae bonie blue.

She talk'd, she smil'd, my heart she wyl'd,
She charm'd my soul I wist na how;
And ay the stound, the deadly wound,
Cam frae her een so bonie blue.
But spare to speak, and spare to speed;
She 'll aiblins listen to my vow:
Should she refuse, I'll lay my dead
To her twa een sae bonie blue.
