William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Georgian Verse.  1909.
 
The Babie
By Hugh Miller (1802–1856)
 
NAE shoon to hide her tiny taes,
  Nae stockings on her feet;
Her supple ankles white as snow
  Of early blossoms sweet.
 
Her simple dress of sprinkled pink,        5
  Her double, dimpled chin;
Her pucker’d lip and bonny mou’,
  With nae ane tooth between.
 
Her een sae like her mither’s een,
  Twa gentle, liquid things;        10
Her face is like an angel’s face—
  We’re glad she has nae wings.
