TO ALLIE, by                    
First Line: Adown the crags o' high montrine
Last Line: By the sweet smile o' my allie.
Subject(s): Courtship

ADOWN the crags o' high Montrine
The deer they lo'e to sally;
'T is there I go, be 't rain or shine,
To meet my bonnie Allie.

The banks o' ripplin' Doon are fair,
And pleasant 't is to dally
Beneath the shade o' hawthorns there
While waitin' for my Allie.

Frae 'tween the clouds the sun peeps out
And lightens hill and valley,
Just as my heart is lightened up
By the sweet smile o' my Allie.
