When seven long lonely months were gone, The mermaid to his cavern came, No more misshapen from the zone, But like a maid of mortal frame. " O give to me that ruby ring, That on thy finger glances gay, And thou shalt hear the mermaid sing The song, thou lovest, of Colonsay.
61 ページ - Now, welcome, noble Branxholm's heir ! Thrice welcome," quoth Soulis, " to me ! Say, dost thou repair to my castle fair, My wedding guest to be ?

In Keeldar's plume the holly green, And rowan leaves, nod on, And vain lord Soulis's sword was seen, Though the hilt was adderstone. Then up the Wee Brown Man he rose, By Soulis of Liddesdale ; " In vain," he said, " a thousand blows Assail the charmed mail.
99 ページ - Where the wave is tinged with red, And the russet sea-leaves grow, Mariners, with prudent dread, Shun the shelving reefs below. As you pass through Jura's sound, Bend your course by Scarba's shore...

69 ページ - Melville of Glenbervie, bore his faculties so harshly, that he became detested by the barons of the country. Reiterated complaints of his conduct having been made to James I.
