First Scottish book image

(p.100)Thou lytill quair be ewir obedient
Humble subiect and symple of entent
Before the face of ewiry connyng wicht
I knaw quhat thou of rethorike may spent
Off all hir lusty rosis redolent.
Is none in to thy gerland sett on hicht
Eschame thar of and draw the out of sicht
Rude is thy wede disteynit bare and rent
Wele aucht thou be aferit of the licht
