Epitaph For A Wag In Mauchline
Language: Scottish (Scots)
Lament him, Mauchline husbands a', He aften did assist ye; For had ye staid hale weeks awa', Your wives they ne'er had miss'd ye! Ye Mauchline bairns, as on ye pass To school in bands thegither, O tread ye lightly on his grass - Perhaps he was your father!
