Hie away, Hie away
By Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832)
HIE 1 away, hie away,
Over bank and over brae,
Where the copsewood is the greenest,
Where the fountains glisten sheenest,
Where the lady-fern grows strongest,        5
Where the morning dew lies longest,
Where the black-cock sweetest sips it,
Where the fairy latest trips it:
    Hie to haunts right seldom seen,
    Lovely, lonesome, cool, and green,        10
    Over bank and over brae,
    Hie away, hie away.
Note 1. From Waverley. [back]
