Nacht, zwart en dicht,
stil en ontastbaar boven
d'onstilb're golven,--
Zoo blind bedolven
is mijn wild leven onder 't donkere verdooven
der Toekomst.

But when Ledgie Cooper had finish'd the pray'r,
An' afore he turn'd to sit doon,
He dichted the sweat aff his broo, an' cried
At his scholars to gather roun'.
"Ledgie Cooper" by Alexander Anderson
Sae clear they are written on memory's page,
That nouther the failin's nor frailties o' age
Can score oot the writin', or dicht it awa';
My heart is aye young, tho' my heid's like the snaw.
