Excerpts from the book:
'April is in my Mistress' face,
And July in her eyes hath place:
Within her bosom is September;
But in her heart a cold December.'
'Dearest Jeany, thou must love me. -
Troth, my bonny lad, I do. -
Since thou sayes so, come I'll prove thee,
Dearest thou must kiss me too. -
Take a kiss or two, my own dear Jockie,
For more I dare give none, I trow. -
Fush, quoth he, be not unlucky. -
Pray, wedd me first and all will do.'
