“Blythe Mormond Braes”


"O, wat ye wha's in yon wee hoose Beneath blythe Mormond Braes?" It is where pretty Nellie sits bleaching her clothes. He praises her beauty, and urges her to "blink owre the burn" with him. They love each other, and will wed, dowry or no


Apart from the title, this has nothing in common with the better-known "Mormond Braes." - RBW
