The Flowers of the Forest

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTkGNcntD7s

I've heard the lilting, at the yowe-milking, Lasses a-lilting before dawn o' day; But now they are moaning on ilka green loaning; "The Flowers of the Forest are a' wede away".

As buchts, in the morning, nae blythe lads are scorning; The lasses are lonely and dowie and wae. Nae daffin', nae gabbin', but sighing and sobbing, Ilk ane lifts her leglen, and hies her away.

In hairst, at the shearing, nae youths now are jeering, The Bandsters are lyart, and runkled and grey. At fair or at preaching, nae wooing, nae fleeching, The Flowers of the Forest are a' wede away.

At e'en, in the gloaming, nae swankies are roaming, 'Bout stacks wi' the lasses at bogle to play. But ilk ane sits drearie, lamenting her dearie, The Flowers of the Forest are a' wede away.

Dule and wae for the order sent our lads to the Border; The English, for ance, by guile wan the day: The Flowers of the Forest, that foucht aye the foremost, The prime o' our land are cauld in the clay.

We'll hae nae mair lilting, at the yowe-milking, Women and bairns are dowie and wae. Sighing and moaning, on ilka green loaning, The Flowers of the forest are all wede away.

-Jean Elliot - 1756
