Hae ye Lain in a Barn on a Swatch o Hye? (scots poem)

Hae ye lain in a barn on a swatch o hye
An watched throw the wide laft door
The meen rise ower a sleepin ferm?
Thon’s a sicht tae hunger for!

The yoam o the lan is girssy green
As the Meen frae her starnie riddle
Skitters the dyew alang the grun
Bricht pearls in a luver’s idyll

Hae ye lain in a barn on a swatch o hye?
Nae bed afore or since
Wis iver as braw, far the saft wins blaw
Fit bield for a royal prince

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
