The farmer's son, young Rabbie Steel—
A weel-faur'd, sleekit, pawkie chiel—
Sune wan her he'rt, an' hoo, gude kens,
Gat Mysie on his finger en's.
"Mysie, An Aul' Warl', But Ower True Story" by Janet Hamilton
"Weel, neebor, for you an' puir Mary I'm wae,
That a chiel like Tam Broon shou'd ha'e tack'lt ye sae;
I ken him fu' weel, an' he's gi'en to the dram,
But sleekit, an' pawkie, and guid at a sham."
"The Ballad O' Mary Muiren" by Janet Hamilton
