Gowden Threids

An auld carl chappit on our door,

Yearly, I cairry this kist:

green silk tae sow

a lown coat for spring,

bricht cramson cloth -

a dress tae dance at Lammas,

blae yarn tae knit

a scarf frae autumn’s souch,

white wool at Yuill

tae hap a shawl or shroud.

Thir gowden threids'

tae stitch the seasouns roun

William Hershaw
