Elphinstone Kist   Rhymes bi Bairns

The Nicht Sky     by: Pyper, Lewis

The nicht sky wis dark an dim
An the seawatter wis comin in
The sailors singin sangs o cheer
Tae be lost in the storm is whit they fear

The midnicht fog comes creepin in
A sailor’s lost, wi nae sign o him
An on the beach there waits his wife
She prays he disna lose his life.
