That shoots my tortured gums alang;
And through my lugs gies monie a twang,
Wi gnawing vengeance,
Tearing my nerves wi bitter pang,
Like racking engines!

To part her lips, and showed them there

Of orient pearl a double row,
Which, when her lovely laughter shows,
They look like rosebuds filld with snow.
