The Two Corbies

As I was walking all alane,
I heard twa corbies making a mane;
The tane unto the t'other say,
Wher sall we gang and dine today?'

In behint yon auld fail dyke,
I wot there lies a new-slain knight;
And naebody kens that he lies there,
But his hawk, his hound, and his lady fair.

His hound is to the hunting gane,
His hawk, to fetch the wild-fowl hame,
His lady's ta'en another mate,
So we may make our dinner sweet.

Ye'll sit on his white hause-bane,
And I'll pike out his bonny blue e'en;
Wi' ae lock o' his gowden hair
We'll theek our nest when it grows bare.

Many a one for him makes mane,
But nane sall ken whare he is gane:
O'er his white banes, when they are bare,
The wind sall blaw for evermair.

Det er den oprindelige, skotske tekst til sangen om "de to ravne", og ligger en del tættere på den danske udgave, end den senere engelske "The Three Ravens" - begge kan findes her på siden.
Jeg ved ikke, om nogen har fornøjelse af dette, men jeg syntes selv, at det var interessant at gøre sammenligningen og studere sproget.
