Elphinstone Kist   Doric Verse, Animals

The Elephant's Merriege     by: Blackhall, Sheena

Skinnymalinkie langlegs,
Drinkin straas in kilts,
I spied an elephant
That crossed the Dee on stilts.

He didna like the watter,
He crossed, because his bride,
Wis wytin wi a posie
Upon the ither side.

They merried at King's College,
The piper wis a snail,
An five an forty forkietails
Held up the bridal veil.
