Bush aboon Traquair. 

– 

Sung by Peggy, p. 70. 

– 

AT setting day and rising morn, 

With soul that still shall love thee, 

I’ll ask of heaven thy safe return, 

With all that can improve thee. 

I’ll visit oft the birken-bush, 

Where first thou kindly told me, 

Sweet tales of love, and hid my blush, 

Whilst round thou didst enfold me. 

– 

To all our haunts I will repair, 

By greenwood-shaw or fountain; 

Or where the summer-day I’d share 

With thee, upon yon mountain. 

There will I tell the trees and flowers, 

From thoughts unfeign’d and tender. 

By vows you’re mine, by love is yours 

A heart which cannot wander.
