In poetry:

So wee Tottie maun gang to her bed an' sleep soun',
While fairies through a' the still nicht hover roun'—
Sleep, sleep till the mornin', then rise a' her lane,
An' be her ain mither's Wee Tottie again.

A dumpy bit thing that can scarce gang her lane;

As she sits on oor knee, wi' her hair ow'r her broo.
"Wee Tottie" by Alexander Anderson
