A wandering minstrel I A thing of shreds and patches Of ballads, songs and snatches And dreamy lullaby!
Rocking on a lazy billowWith roaming eyes,Cushioned on a dreamy pillow,Thou art now wise.Wake the power within thee slumbering,Trim the plot that's in thy keeping,Thou wilt bless the task when reapingSweet labour's prize.john stuart blackie
