Epitaph for James Smith
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- LAMENT him, Mauchline husbands a’,
- He aften did assist ye;
- For had ye staid hale weeks awa,
- Your wives they ne’er had miss’d ye.
- Ye Mauchline bairns, as on ye press,
- To school in bands thegither,
- O tread ye lightly on his grass,—
- Perhaps he was your father!
