Elphinstone Kist   Doric Verse

Three Ages Of Man     by: Glennie , James D.

Faa’s yon strappin striplin cheil
Dyod he’s steppin oot
Swipper’t as a spangie wan
An feert o damn the hoot;
Bit wyte!The cheilies slawin doon
Nae jist sae swak the noo
Hair straiket throwe wi siller
An wrunkles on his brou ;
Thons nae the cheil? Fegs he’s bou’t
An canny noo his fit
Bit still an on ah’ll sweer he’ll thraw
Cam the sneckin o the yett.
