Heilan Mary (2)     by: Flanagan, John

Heilan Mary, the luv o Rabbie Burns,
Fair broon een,
Her moo wis reid, reid as a rose.
Her heid wis covered wi blaik hair
It shone wi ivery twist an turn.
She pit her bare fit in the burn
It wis lovely an cauld.
She held her present fae Rabbie,
A silk reid hairt.
It wis his hairt, he said,
Tae show his luv fur her.
