Rhododendron - danger

Before I gang awa from thee,
I'll speak my heart out fu' and free,
And gin ye listen now to me,
And wee bit wordie, -
'T will do ye good, my donsie, wee,
And bonnie birdie!

Och! dinna trust admirin' man!
He'll gain a heart where'er he can,
And grasp it wi' a cruel han, -
And wound it sorely!
And then, wi' man's and woman's ban,
Ye'll fare but puirly!

~ J.Wesley Hanson, Lowell, 1846
