The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
482. Song—Pretty Peg, my dearie
 
 
AS I gaed up by yon gate-end,
  When day was waxin’ weary,
Wha did I meet come down the street,
  But pretty Peg, my dearie!
 
Her air sae sweet, an’ shape complete,        5
  Wi’ nae proportion wanting,
The Queen of Love did never move
  Wi’ motion mair enchanting.
 
Wi’ linkèd hands we took the sands,
  Adown yon winding river;        10
Oh, that sweet hour and shady bower,
  Forget it shall I never!
