Ye Rurall Powers who hear my Strains    

Why thus should Peggy grieve me? 

Make her partner in my Pains

Then let her # Smiles relieve me:

But if my Love can't turn disdain,  

My Passion'sno more tender   

I'll leave the Bush; x Aboon Traquair! 

To lonely ¶ Weels I'll wander.    

Scotch Dialect #Smeels  x  Adieu  ¶ Wilderness
