The Muse Dismissed (Hugh Porter 1780–1839)
- Be hush'd my Muse, ye ken the morn
- Begins the shearing o' the corn,
- Whar knuckles monie a risk maun run,
- An' monie a trophy's lost an' won,
- Whar sturdy boys wi' might and main
- Shall camp, till wrists an' thumbs they strain,
- While pithless, pantin' wi' the heat,
- They bathe their weazen'd pelts in sweat
- To gain a sprig o' fading fame,
- Before they taste the dear-bought cream—
- But bide ye there, my pens an' papers,
- For I maun up, an' to my scrapers—
- Yet, min', my lass— ye maun return
- This very night we cut the churn.
- I want hom tha nite tae me ma
- an shea sae up da ra
