  • Country folk see nothing amiss
    If weary gleaners share a kiss,
    Thinking harmless snoggage
    In the fields of foggage
    A touching sign of harvest bliss.

  • Thy wee bit housie, too, in ruin!
    Its silly wa's the win's are strewin';
    An' naething, now, to big a new ane,
    O' foggage green!
    An' bleak December's winds ensuin',
    Baith snell an' keen!
