Orpheus Caledonius, 

O U Eeaus and Belles fo fine and fair, 
Here learn to love, and be fincerc ; 
True Pafllon Nature dill imparts, 

Nor values Bodies without Hearts ; 

YoLi faifly vow, and whine, and figh, 

And make no Confcience of a Lye i 

Oh ! How can Beaus fair Belles deceive ? 

Or why will Belles fine Beaus believe ? 

Love's bright elt Flames warm ScottiJhh^<Xs, 
Tho' coolly clad in High-land Plads; 
Theyfcorn Brocade, who like theLafs, 
Nor need a Carpet, if there's Grafs i 
With Pipe and Glee each Hill refounds, 
And Love that gives, can heal their Wounds. 
The bonny Lafs ofVczii^s Mill 
Shews Wit's a Fool, when Nature will 5 
Who pities not the Swain s Defpair, 
.That hears, The Bujh a boon Traquair : 
Or him that loves, yet cannot fay. 
If BeJJy Bell, or Marji Gray ^ 

Thus 



Thus merrily they court the Fair, 
And love andfmg in Northern Air: 
Thus the gay Warblers of the Spring 
From Spray to Spray do hop and fing 5 
Kind Nature fills their little Throats, 
With fweet and unaffcded Notes ; 
Their flatt 'ring Wings to Love fhe prunes, 
Their Voices wild to Love fhe tunes 5 
And all the Cares they ever prove. 
Is Life, half Harmony, half Love,

But Mary Gray's twa pawky Een, 
They gar my Fancy falter.

White is her Neck, faft is her Hand^

With ilka Grace {he can command 1

^he Bujh aboon Traquair. 

HEar me, ye Nymphs, and every Swain^, 
I'll tell how "Teggy grieves me, 
Tho' thus I languifh, thus complain, 

Alas ! fhe ne'er believes me. 
My Vows and Sighs, like filent Air, 

Unheeded never move herj 
At the bonny Bufh aboon Traquair^ 
Twas there I firtt did love her. 

That Day fhe fmil'd, and made me glad. 

No Maid feem'd ever kinder -, 
I thought my felf the luckieft Lad, 

So fweetly there to find her. 
I try'd to footh my am'rous Flame, 

In Words that I thought tender 5 
If more there pafs'd, Tm not to blamCj 

I meant not to oflFend her. 

Yet now fiie fcornful flies the Plain^ 
The Fields we then frequented 5 

If e'er we meet, fhe fhews difdain^ 
She looks as ne'er acquainted. 



The 



6 Orpheus Caledonius. 

The bonny Bufh bloom'd fair in May, 

Its Sweets ril ay remember 5 
But now her Frowns make it decay. 

It fades as in T>ecember. 

Ye rural Powers, who hear my Strains, 

Why thus fhould Teggy grieve me \ 
Oh I make her Partner in my Pains, 

Then let her Smiles relieve me. 
If not, my Love will turn Defpair, 

My Pallion no more tender, 
rU leave the Bufh aboon Traquair^ 

To lonely Wilds I'll wander.

And thushedifcover'd iiow he drove with his PaiK 

Tho' C/^m be coy, why fhou'd I repine.

Vouchfafes not to love me, 
In her Rank of Merit I never can fhinc , 
Then why fhouldl feek to debafe her to mine: 
No, henceforth Efteeni fhall bridle Defire, 

And in due Subjedion,

No Spark of Self-love (hail blaze in my Fire, 
Then where is the Swam can more humbly admire.

Tho'Love is rejeded : 
And Cloris muft own, tho' (he ftill proves unkind^ 
That there is no fuch Friend as a Lover refign'd. 

May the fortunate Swain, who hereafter (hall fue. 

With happy Endeavour^ 

To gain her dear Favour, 
Know as well as I, what to Cloris is due, 
Be ftill more deferving and never lefs true. 
Whilft I difingag'd from Wifhes and fears, 

Tranquillity tafting. 

On Liberty feafting, 
In hopes of fureBIifs fhall pafs my few Years, 
And long to efcape from this Valley of Tears. 

Ye Powers that prefide over virtuous Love, 

Now aid me with Patience, 

To bear my Vexations, 
With noble Defigns my winged Heart move. 
With Sentiments pureft my Notions improve. 
Ife*er my young Heart be caught in Love's Chain^ 

May Prudence dired: me, 

And Courage proted me, 
Prepai'd for alt Fates, rememb'ring the Swain, 
That grew happily wile, after loving in vain.

Thofe Pleafures, which can only cure 

This panting Bread of mine. 

I faint, I fail, and wildly rove, 

Becaufe you ftill deny 
The juft Reward that's due to Love, 

And let true Paflipn die.

Oh ! turn and let Gompaflion feize

If thou and it were mine. 

Sure Heaven has fitted for Delight, 

That beauteous Form of thine. 
And thou'rt too good its Law to flight. 

By hind'ring the Defign. 
May all the Powers of Love agree, 

At length to make thee mine, 
Or loofe my Chains, and fet me free 

From ev'ry Charm of thine.

HO W fweetly fmells the Simmer Green 
Sweet tafte the Peach and Cherry i 
Pamting and Order pleafe our Een, 

And Claret makes us merry : 
But fineft Colours, Fruits and Flowers, 

And Wine, tho' I be thirfty, 
Lofc a' their Charms and weaker Powers, 
Compared with thofe of Chrifiy, 

When wand'ring o'er the flow*ry Park, 

No nat'ral Beauty wanting, 
How lightfome is't to hear the Lark) 

And Birds in Confort chanting ? 
But f my Chrifiy tunes her Voice^ 

I'm rapt in Admiration ; 
My Thoughts with Extafies rejoice^ 

And drap the hale Creation^ 

Whene'er (he fmiles a kindly Glance^ 
I take the happy Omen, 



And 



24 Orpheus Caledonius. 
And aften mint to make Advance, 

Hoping fhe'li prove a Woman : 
But, dubiousof myain Defert, 

My Sentiments I fmothcr ; 
With fecret Sighs I vex my Heart, 

For fear fhe love another. 

Thus fang blat e Edie by a Burn$ 

His Chrijty did o'er-hear him i 
She doughtna let her Lover mourn, 

But e'er he wift drew near him. 
She fpake her Favour with a Look, 

Which left nae room to doubt herj 
He wifely this white Minute took, 

And flang his Arms about her. 

My Chrtfiy I — witnefs, bonny Stream, 

Sic Joys frae Tears arifing, 
I wifli th is may nae be a Dream j 

O Love the maift furprifing ! 
Time was too precious now for Tauk i 

This Point of a* his Wifhes 
He wadna with fet Speeches bank, 

But war'd it a* on KilTcs.

The Gifts of Nature and Fortune, 

May fly, by chance as they came ; 
They're Grounds the Deftinies fport on. 

But Vertue is ever the fame. 

Altho' my Fancy were roving, 

Thy Charms fo heavenly appear. 
That other Beauties difproving, 

I'd worfhip thine only, my Dear. 
And fhou'd Life's Sorrows embitterj 

The Pleafure we promis'd our Loves, 
To fhare them together is fitter. 

Than moan afunder, like Doves. 

Oh ! were I but once fo bleffed. 

To grafp my Love in my Arms ! 
By thee to be grafped ! and kiifed ! 

And live on thy Heaven of Charms ! 
I'd laugh at Fortune's Caprices, 

Shou'd Fortune capricious prove ; 
Tho' Death fhou'd tear me to pieces, 

I'd die a Martyr to Love.

While Ma/s fwect Scent did chear my Brain, 

From Flowers which grow fo rarely ;

She fhin'd, tho' it was fogie i 
I ask'd her Name : fweet Sir, fhe faid. 
My Name is Katherine Ogte, 

I flood a while, and did admire, 

To fee a Nymph fo ftately ; 
So brisk an Air there did appear 

In a Country Maid fo neatly : 
Such natural Sweetnefs fhe difplay'd, 

Like a Lillie in a Bogie ;

Tho' thou art dreft in Robes but mean. 

Yet thefe cannot difguifc thee : 
Thy handfome Air, and graceful Look, 

Far excels any clownifh Rogie ; 
Thou art Match forLoid, or Duke, 

My charming Katherine Ogie. 

O were I but fome Shepherd-Swain ! 

To feed my Flock befide thee. 
At Boughting-time to leave the Plain, 

In milking to abide thee } 
I'd think myfelfa happier Man, 

With Kate, my Club, and Dogie, 
Than he that hugs his Thoufands ten. 

Had I but Katherine Ogie. 

Then I'd defpife th* Imperial Throne, 

And Statefmens dangerous Stations : 
I'd be no King, I'd wear no Crown, 

I'd fmile at conquering Nations : 
Might I carefs and ftill poffefs 

ThisLafs, of whom I'm vogie ; 
For thefe are Toys and ftill look lefs, 

Compar'd with Katherine Ogie. 

But I fear the Gods have not decreed 
For me lo fine a Creature, 

Whofe 



Orpheus Caledoniu^, 

Whofe Beauty rare makes her exceed 

All other Works in Nature. 
Clouds of Defpair furround my Love, 

That are both dark and fogie : 
Pity my Cafe, ye Powers above, 

Elfe I die for Kather'me Ogie.

Let your brave Head recline, 
We'll pleafe ourfelves with mutual Charms, 

As we did lang fyne.

And, after a biyth Bottle, end 

All Cares in my Embrace : 
And in a vacant rainy Day, 

You {hall be wholly mine j 
Well make the Hours run fmooth away. 

And laugh at Jang fyne. 

The Hero, pleas'd with the fweet Air, 

And Signs of generous Love, 
Which had been utter'd by the Fair, 

Bow'd to the Pow'rs above : 
Next Day, with Confent and glad Hafte, 

Th' approach'd the facrcd Shrine ; 
Where the good Prieft the Couple bUft,

And Waly, Waly, down yon Brea 5 
And Waly by yon River's fide, 

Where my Love and I was wont to gae/ 

Waly, Waly, gin Love be bonny, 
A little while when it is new ; 

But when it's auld, it waxes cauld. 
And wears away, like Morning Dew. 

I leant my Back unto an Aik, 

I thought it was a trufty Tree ; 
But firft it bow'd, and fine it brafcc^, 

And fac did my faufe Love to me. 

When Cockle-fhclls turn filler Bells, 
And Mufclcs grow on ev*ry Tree 5 

When Froft and Snaw fhall warm us a*. 
Then (hall my Love prove true to mc.

Now Arthur-Seat fhall be my Bed, 
The Sheets fhall ne*cr be fyl'd by me; 

Saint Antonys Well fnall be my Drink, 
Since my true Love has forfaken me. 

O Martinmas Wind, when wilt thou blaw. 
And fhake the green Leaves off the Tree ? 

O gentle Death, when wilt thou come ? 
And take a I-ife that wearies me. 

'Tis not the Froft that freezes fell, 
Nor blawing Snaw's Inclemency ; 

*Tis not fie Cauld that makes me cry, 
But my Love's Heart grown eauld to me. 

When we came in by Glafgow Town, 
We were a comely Sight to fee ; 

My Love was cled in the black Velvet, 
And I my fell in Cramafie. 

But had I wift before I kifs'd. 

That Love had been fae ill to win 5 

Td lock'd my Heart in a Cafe of Gold, 
And pin d it with a filvcr Pin. 



Oh,

When Birds mount and fing, bidding Day a Good-

They're jet black o'er wi' flaes, 
Ye may cudle in them the gither. 

Ye fpeak right well, Guidman^ 
But ye maun mend your Hand, 
And think o' modefty, 
Gin ye'll not quat your Land : 
We are but young, ye ken, 
And now we're gawn tiie gither 5 
A Houfe is Butt and Benn, 
And Cnimmie will want her Pother. 
The Bairns are coming on. 
And they'll cry, O their Mither! 
We have nouther Pot nor Pan, 
But four bare Legs the gither. 

Your Tocher's be good enough. 
For that ye need na fear, 
Twa good (lilts to the Pleugh, 
And ye your fell maun fieer : 
Ye Ihall hae twa good -Pocks 
That anes were o' the Tweel, 
The t'ane to had the Grots, 
The ither to had the Meal : 
With ane auld kift made of Wands, 
And that fail be your Coffer,

Confider well, Guidman, 
We hae but borrow'd Gear, 
The Horfe that I ride on 
Is Sandy Wilfon's Mare: 
The Saddle's nanc of my ain. 
An thae's but borrowed Boots, 
And when that 1 gae hame, 
I maun take to my Coots : 
The Cloak is Geordy fVatt's, 
That gars me look fae croufe 5 
Come fill us a Cogue of Swats, 
Well make nae mair toom rufe. 

I like you well, young Lad, 
For telling me fae plain, 
I married when little I had 
O* Gear that was my ain. 
But fm that things are fae, 
The Bride fhe maun come furth, 
Tho' a' the Gear Ihe'll ha'e. 
It'll be but little worth. 
A Bargain it maun be, 
Fy cry on Giles the Mither : 
Content am I, quo' (he.

A thoufand various Wifhes.

Met her Sweetheart IVtllie ftraying,

But this we know, he reafon'd with her. 

Mark, dear Maid, the Turtles cooing, 
Fondly billing, kindly wooing,

Happy Pairs of feather'd Lovers : 



Or in fineins;, or in loving

Sweet's the Time, ah ! fliort's the Meafure 
Of their fleeting, hafty Plcafure.

Quickly we muft fnatch the BlifTes, 
Of their fofc and fragrant KilTes, 
To-day they bloom, they fade to-morrow, 
Droop their heads, and die in forrow. 

Time, my Befs^ will leave no Traces 
Of thofe Beauties, of thofe Graces ; 
Youth and Love forbid our flaying. 
Love and Youth abhor delaying. 

Deareft Maid, nay, do not fly me, 
Let your Pride no more deny me : 
ISIever doubt your faithful Willie^ 
There's my Thumb, I'll ne'er beguile ye.

The Gaberlunzte-Ma?t, 

TH E pawky auld Carle came o'er the Lee, 
Wi' many good E'ens and Days to me. 
Saying, Good-wife, for your Courtifie, 

Will ye lodge a flily poor Man ? 
The Night was cauld, the Carle was wat. 
And down ayont the Ingle he fati 
My Daughter's Shoulders he 'gan to clap. 
And cadgily ranted and fang. 

O wow ! quo' he, were I as free, 
As firft when I faw this Country, 
How blyth and merry wad I be ! 

And I wad never think lang. 
He grew canty, and fhe grew fain; 
But little did her auld Minny ken 
What thir flee twa togither were fay'n, 

When wooing they were fae thrang. 



And 



Orpheus Caledonius. 

And O ! quo' he, ann ye were as black. 
As e'er the Grown of my Dady's Hat, 
'Tis I wad lay thee by my Back, 

And awa' wi' me thou fhou'd gang. 
And O ! quo' fhe, ann I were as white. 
As e'er the Snaw lay on the Dike, 
I'd dead me braw, and lady-like, 

And awa* with thee I'd gang. 

Between the twa was made a Plot ; 
They raife a wee before the Cock, 
And wylily they fhot the Lock, 

And fail to the Bent are they gane. 
Up in the Morn the auld Wife raife, 
And at her Lcifure pat on her Chifej 
Syne to the Servant's Bed fhe ga?s, 

To fpeer for the filly poor Man. 

She gaed to the Bed where the Beggar lay^ 
The Strae was cauld, he was away, 
She clapt her hands, cry'd, Waladay, 

For fome of our Gear will be gane. 
Some ran to Coffers, and fome to Kifts, 
But nought was down that cou'd be mifl'. 
She danc'd her lane, cry'd, Praife be bleft, 

I have lodg'd a leal poor Man. 



Since 



OUPHEUS CaJLEDONIU^. 97 

Since iiatliing*s awa', as we can learn, 
The Kirns to Kirn, and Milk to Earn, 
Gae butt the Houfe, Lafs, and waken my Bairn, 

And bid her come quickly ben. 
The Servant gade where the Daughter lay, 
The Sheets was cauld, fhe was away. 
And fall to her good Wife can fay, 

She's aif with the Gaberlunzie-Man. 

O fy gar ride, and fy gar rin, 

And hafte ye find thefe Traitors again ; 

For file's be burnt, and he's be flain. 

The wearifu Gaberlunzie-Man. 
Some rade upo* Horfe, fome ran a fir^ 
The Wife was wood, and out o' her Wit : 
She cou d na' gang, nor yet cou'd fhe fir, 

But ay file curs'd and fhe ban'd. 

Mean time far hind out o'er the Lee, 

Fu fnug in a Glen, where nane cou'd fee, 

The twa, with kindly Sport and Glee, 

Cut frae a new Cheefc a whang : 
The Priving was good, it pleas'd them baith^ 
To lo'e her for ay, he ga'e her his aith 5 
Quo' fhe, to leave thee I will be laith, 

My winfomc Gaberlunzie-Man.

98 Orpheus Caledonius. 

O ken'd my Minny I were wi' you, 
ril fardly wad fhe crook her mou, 
Sic a poor Man fhe'd never trow, 

After the Gaberlunzie-Man. 
My Dear, quo' he, ye're yet o'er young. 
And ha' na' learn'd the Beggars Tongue, 
To follow me frae Town to Town, 

And carry the Gaberlunzie on. 

Wi' cauk and keel I'll win your Bread, 

And Spindles and Whorles for them wha' need, 

Whilk is a gentle Trade indeed. 

To carry the Gaberlunzie-O. 
I'll bow my Leg, and crook my Knee, 
And draw a black Clout o'er my Eye, 
A Cripple or Blind they will ca' me, 

While we fhall be merry, and fing.

Orpheus Caledonius. 107 




XLVIII. 
l!he Lafs of Livingfton. 

PAin'd with her flighting Jamie^s Love, 
Bell dropt a Tear,- Bell dropt a Tear ; 

The Gods defcended from above. 

Well pleas'd to hear, well pleas*d to hear : 

They heard the Prai fes of the Youth 

From her own Tongue — from her own Tongue i 
Who now converted was to Truth, 

And thus (he fung, and thus fhe Tung. 

Bleft Days ! when our ingenious Sex, 

More frank and kind, more frank and kind. 

Did not their lov'd Adorers vex. 

But fpoke their mind, — but fpoke their mind. 
Repenting now, fhe promisM fair, 

Wou'd he return, wou'd he return. 

She ne'er again wou'd give him Care, 

Or caufe him mourn, or caufe him mourn. 

P 2 Why 



io8 Orpheus Caledonius. 

Why lov'd I thee, deferving Swain, 

Yet ftill thought fhame,^yet ftill thought (hame, 
.When he my yielding Heart did gain, 

To own my Flame,— to own my Flame ? 
Why took I pleafure to torment, 

And feem too coy, — and feem too coy ? 
Which makes me now alas lament 

My flighted Joy, — my flighted Joy. 

Ye Fair, while Beauty's in its Spring, 

Own your Defire, — -own your Defire i 
While Love's young Power with his foft Wnr^ 

Fans up the Fire,— fans up the FirCo 
O do notj with a filly Pride, 

Or low Dcfign,— or low Defign, 
Refufe to be a happy Bride, 

But anfwer plain,-— but anfwer plain. 

Thus the fair Mourner waii'd her Crime, 

With flowing Eyes,— with flowing Eyes ; 
Glad Jamie heard her all the time, 

With fweet Surprize,— with fweet Surprize. 
Some God had led him to the Grove, 

His Mind unchang'd, — his Mind unchang'd 5 
Hew to her Arms, and cry'd. My Love, 

1 am reveng'd,— I am reveng'do

XLIX. 
William and Margaret. 

,/ I ^WAS at the filcnt Midnight-Hour, 
X When all were faft afleep ; 

In glided Margaret* s grimly Ghoft, 
And flood at Wtlliam\ Feet. 

Her Face was like an April Morn, 

Clad in a wintry Cloud : 
And clay-cold was her lilly Hand, 

That held her fable Shroud. 

So (hall the faireft Face appear, 

When Youth and Years are flown : 

Such is the Robe that Kings muft wear. 
When Death has reft their Crown. . 



Her Bloom was like the fpringing Flower, 

That flps the fllver Dew : 
The Rofe was budded in her Cheek? 

Juft opening to the View. 



But 



no Orpheus Caledonius. 

But Love had, like the Canker-Worm, 

Confum'd her early Prime : 
The Bsofc grew pale, and left her Cheek, 

She dy'd before her Time. 

Awake! fhe cry*d, thy true Love calls. 
Come from her midnight Grave : 

Now kt thy Pity hear the Maid, 
Thy Love rcfus'd to fave. 

This is the dumb and dreary Hour, 
When injur'd Ghofts complain; 

When yawning Graves give up their Dead, 
To haunt the faithlefs Man. 

Bethink thee, WiUiamy of thy Fault, 
Thy Pledge, and broken Oath : 

And give me back my maiden Vow, 
And give me back my Troth. 

Why did you promife Love to me. 

And not that Promife keep ? 
Why did you fwear my Eyes were bright. 

Yet leave thofe Eyes to weep ? 

How could you fay my Face was fair. 

And yet that Face forfake ? 
How could you win my virgin Heart, 

Yet leave that Heart to break ? 
3 



Whi 



Orpheus Caledonius. hi 

Why did you fay my Lip was fweet, 

And made the Scarlet pale? 
And why did I, young, witlefs Maid, 

Believe the flattering Tale ? 

That Face, alas ! no more is fair, 

Thofe Lips no longer red : 
Dark are my Eyes, now clos'd in Death, 

And every Charm is fled. 

The hungry Worm my Sifter is ; 

This Winding-Sheet I wear : 
And cold and weary lafts our Night, 

'Till that laft Morn appear. 

But hark! the Cock has warn'd me hence: 

A long and laft Adieu ! 
Come, fee, falfc Man, how low ftie lies. 

Who dy'd for love of you. 

The Lark fung loud, the Morning fmil'd, 

And rais'd her glittering Head : 
Pale William quak'd in every Limb, 

And raving left his Bed, 

He hy'd him to the fatal Place 

Where Margaret* s, Body lay. 

And ftretch'd him on the grafs-green Turf, 

That wrapt her breathlefs Clay. 

And 



112 Orpheus Caledonius. 

And thrice he call'd on Margaret's Name, 
And thrice he wept full fore. 

Then laid his Cheek to her cold Grave, 
And Word fpoke never more.

Down the Burn Davie. 

WHEN Trees did bud, and Fields were green, 
And Broom bloom'd fair to fee 5 
When Mary was compleat Fifteenj 

And Love laugh'd in her Eye 5 
Blyth 'Davie % Blinks her Heart did move^ 

To Ipcak her Mind thus free, 
Gang down the Burn^ Davie, Love^ 
And 1 ^ all follow thee. 

Now Davie did each Lad furpafs. 

That dwelt on this Burn-fide, 
And Mary was the bonnieft Lais, 

Jud meet to be a Bride 5 
Her Cheeks were rofy, red and v/hite. 

Her Een were bonny blue ; 
Her Looks were like Aur§ra bright. 

Her Lips like dropping Dew. 

As down the Burn they took their wayj^ 

What tender Tales they faid ! 
His Cheek to hers he aft did lay. 

And with her Bofom piay'd , 

Vol. I. Q Till 



114 Orpheus Caledonius. 

Till baith at length impatient grown. 

To be mair fully bleft, 
In yonder Vale they lean'd them down 5 

Love only faw the reft.* 

What pafs*d, I guefs, was harmlcfs Play, 

And naithing fure unmeet 5 
For ganging hame, I heard him fay. 

They lik'd a wa'k fae fweet ; 
And that they aften fliou'd return. 

Sic Pleafure to renew. 
(Juoth Mary^ Love, I like the Burn, 

And ay fhall follow you.
