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

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
