The Bonnie Quine Mystery     by: James, Hannah

Source: Highland Mary- Thomas Faed

Fa is she?
Naebody kens!
Wanderin aboot
Up in the mornin
Jist efter she’d rise
She pit in her bonnie clyes
Fan the bonnie skies come oot

She gangs tae the wee puddle
Richt at the edge o the Ben
Soakin her feet in o it
Bit a fylie efter she did it
She nae langer rose
Beeriet unner i grun
She wis anely 21
Fa is this quine o mystery
