25. Earl Mar’s Daughter I It was intill a pleasant time,
Upon a simmer’s day,
The noble Earl Mar’s daughter
Went forth to sport and play.
II And while she play’d and sported
Below a green aik tree,
There she saw a sprightly doo[214]
Set on a tower sae hie.
III ‘O Coo-me-doo, my love sae true,
If ye’ll come doun to me,
Ye’se hae a cage o’ gude red gowd
Instead o’ simple tree.
IV ‘I’ll put gowd hingers[215] roun’ your cage,
And siller roun’ your wa’;
I’ll gar ye shine as fair a bird
As ony o’ them a’.’
V But she had nae these words well spoke,
Nor yet these words well said,
Till Coo-me-doo flew frae the tower
And lichted on her head.
