The frosty nicht with her prolixit hours,
Her mantil quhyt spred on the tender flowers;
Quhen ardent labour has addressit me,
Translate the tale of our progenitours,
Thair greit manheid, wisdom, and hie honours,
Quhair we may, clair as in a mirrour, see
The furious end sometimes of tyrannie,
Sometimes the gloir of prudent governours,
Ilk state apprysit in thair facultie.
