Heilan Mary (1)     by: Lawson, Nicola

Mary wi her pyoke o poems
That Rabbie Burns wrote fur her.
She's tryin nae tae greet
Because her lad his left her,
Sittin aa alane haudin a gift
He gaed her tae show his love fur her,
Tryin tae pretend that she's cweelin her feet
Fin she's thinkin aboot him,
The watter lichtly treetlin in the saft breeze.
She's myndin aboot the day she met him,
Weirin her grandest claes,
Waitin fur him tae cam back.
