First Line: At polwart on the green
Last Line: To take a part of mine.
Subject(s): Dancing & Dancers

At Polwart on the Green
If you'll meet me the morn,
Where lasses do convene
To dance about the thorn;
A kindly welcome you shall meet
Frae her wha likes to view
A lover and a lad complete,
The lad and lover you.

Let dorty dames say na,
As lang as e'er they please,
Seen caulder than the sna',
While inwardly they bleeze;
But I will frankly shaw my mind,
And yield my heart to thee;
Be ever to the captive kind,
That langs na to be free.

At Polwart on the Green,
Among the new-mown hay,
With sangs and dancing keen
We'll pass the heartsome day,
At night if beds be o'er thrang laid,
And thou be twin'd of thine,
Thou shalt be welcome, my dear lad,
To take a part of mine.
