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
