Էջ 168 - For he who fights and runs away May live to fight another day ; But he who is in battle slain Can never rise and fight again.
Էջ 133 - Sin' the fa' o' the year. Sair trouble cam our gate, And made me, when it cam, A bird without a mate, A ewe without a lamb. Our hay was yet to maw, And our corn was to shear, When they a' dwined awa' In the fa' o
