    [These words were written for Thomson: or rather made extempore. "I
    might give you something more profound," says the poet, "yet it might
    not suit the light-horse gallop of the air, so well as this random
    clink."]

    I.

    She is a winsome wee thing,
    She is a handsome wee thing,
    She is a bonnie wee thing,
    This sweet wee wife o' mine.

    II.

    I never saw a fairer,
    I never lo'ed a dearer;
    And niest my heart I'll wear her,
    For fear my jewel tine.

    III.

    She is a winsome wee thing,
    She is a handsome wee thing,
    She is a bonnie wee thing,
    This sweet wee wife o' mine.

    IV.

    The warld's wrack we share o't,
    The warstle and the care o't;
    Wi' her I'll blythely bear it,
    And think my lot divine.
