Poem by Robert Burns

Im Owre Young To Marry Yet

I AM my mammies ae bairn,
  Wi unco folk I weary, Sir;
And lying in a mans bed,
  Im fleyd wad mak me eerie, Sir.

    Im owre young, Im owre young,
      Im owre young to marry yet;
    Im owre young, twad be a sin
      To tak me frae my mammie yet.

My mammie coft me a new gown,
  The kirk maun hae the gracing ot;
Were I to lie wi you, kind Sir,
  Im feard yed spoil the lacing ot.

Hallowmas is come and gane,
  The nights are lang in winter, Sir;
And you an I in ae bed,
  In troth I dare na venture, Sir.

Fu loud and shrill the frosty wind
  Blaws thro the leafless timmer, Sir;
But if ye come this gate again,
  Ill aulder be gin simmer, Sir.
