PRINCE EDWARDE AND ADAM
TO Adam Gordon's gloomye haunte
1 Prince Edwarde wounde hys waye: " And coulde I but meete that bold outlawe,
"s In the wolde where he doth laye!
Prince Edwarde boldlyc wounde his waye
Thebriars and bogs amonge: " And coulde I but finde that bolde outlawe, ' " Hys ly fe shoulde not be longe.
" And now come on, my merrye men all,
" Nor heede the drearye waye;
" And when wee meete in hardye fyghte,
“ Let no one come betweene; 66 For Adam oʻGordon's as brave a man
“ As ever foughte on greene.”
And then bespake a valiante knyghte:
" Now, prince, thy wordes make goode; " For yonder I see that proude outlawe,
“ A cominge forthe the woode.”
• Arouze,” he criede, “ my merrye men alle,
" And stande yee welle your grounde; “ For yonder great prince Edwarde coms,
• For valoure fo renownde.”
6. Now welcom, welcom, Adam Gordon,
“ I'm gladde I have thee founde; 6. For manye a daye I've foughte for thee,
"6 Thro’ alle the countrye rounde."
Oh then began as fierce a fyghte
As 'ere was foughte in fielde;
Their heartes with courage steel'de.
Fulle manye an houre in valiante fyghte
These chieftaines bolde did close;
Reechoed with their blowes.
Full many a warriour floode arounde
That marvellous fighte to see, While from their woundes the gushing bloode
Ranne like the fountaine free.
“ Adam, thy valour charms my soule,
" I ever love the brave; " And tho? I feare not thy dread (worde,
“ Thy honoure I woulde fave.
