    I ’ve wandered east, I ’ve wandered west,
  Through mony a weary way;
But never, never can forget
  The luve o’ life’s young day!

    ’T was then we luvit ilk ither weel,
  ’T was then we twa did part:
Sweet time—sad time! twa bairns at scule—
  Twa bairns and but ae heart. 1

    And we, with Nature’s heart in tune,

    Mournfully, oh, mournfully,
  The midnight wind doth sigh,
Like some sweet plaintive melody
  Of ages long gone by.
