Hark! The dazzled laverock climbs the golden steep!
The laverock walk'd mute 'mid the sorrowful scene,
The nightingale, the poppinjay, the gentle laverock.
The laverock sings a bonny lay above the Scottish heather;
While o'er him sweet the laverock sings, new sprung frae 'mang the dew;
Hark! The dazzled laverock climbs the golden steep:
At Halystane the laverock springs upon his breezy quest;
Thou laverock, that springs frae the dews o 'the lawn [lark]
The laverock sings a bonny lay above the Scottish heather; 5
I'm like the auld Black Douglas (wasnae't?) that likit better to hear the laverock sing than the mouse cheep.
