CUPID° AND VENUS

Mark Alexander Boyd

Fra bank to bank, fra wood to wood I rin,° Ourhailit° with my feeble fantasie Like til° a leaf that fallis from a tree Or til a reed ourblawin with the win.° Twa gods guides me: the ane of them is blin,° Yea, and a bairn° brocht up in vanitie,° The next a wife° engenrit° of the sea, And lichter nor° a dauphin° with her fin. Unhappy is the man for evermair That tills the sand and sawis° in the air; But twice unhappier is he, I lairn, That feidis° in his hairt a mad desire And follows on a woman thro the fire, Led by a blind and techit by a bairn. °cupid: Cupid, the son of Venus, was sometimes depicted wearing a blindfold. °rin: run; °Ourhailit: overcome; °til: to; °win: wind; °blin: blind; °bairn: child °vanitie: spoiled; °wife: woman; °engenrit: born; °nor: than; °dauphin: dolphin °sawis: sows seed; °feidis: feeds
