A Galloway Song
by John Keats (July 10th, 1818).

Ah! ken ye what I met the day
    Out oure the Mountains
A coming down by craggi[e]s grey
    An mossie fountains—
A[h] goud hair'd Marie yeve I pray
    Ane minute's guessing—
For that I met upon the way
    Is past expressing.
As I stood where a rocky brig
    A torrent crosses
I spied upon a misty rig
    A troup o' Horses—
And as they trotted down the glen
    I sped to meet them
To see if I might know the Men
    To stop and greet them.
First Willie on his sleek mare came
    At canting gallop—
His long hair rustled like a flame
    On board a shallop.
Then came his brother Rab and then
    Young Peggy's Mither
And Peggy too—adown the glen
    They went togither—
I saw her wrappit in her hood
    Fra wind and raining—
Her cheek was flush wi' timid blood
    Twixt growth and waning—
She turn'd her dazed head full oft
    For there her Brithers
Came riding with her Bridegroom soft
    And mony ithers.
Young Tam came up an' eyed me quick
    With reddened cheek—
Braw Tam was daffed like a chick—
    He coud na speak—
Ah Marie they are all gane hame
    Through blustering weather
An' every heart is full on flame
    An' light as feather.
Ah! Marie they are all gone hame
    Fra happy wedding,
Whilst I—Ah is it not a shame?
    Sad tears am shedding.
