WILLIAM JULIUS MICKLE
Scottish poet and translator
(1735 - 1788)

There's little pleasure in the house
  When our gudeman's aya.
      - [Absence]

Sae true his heart, sae smooth his speech,
  His breath like caller air,
    His very foot has music in 't,
      As he comes up the stair.
      - Ballad of Cumnor Hall--Mariner's Wife
        [Character]

The dews of summer night did fall;
  The moon (sweet regent of the sky)
    Silver'd the walls of Cumnor Hall,
      And many an oak that grew thereby.
      - Cumnor Hall,
        authorship of "Cumnor Hall" sometimes claimed for Jean Adam
        [Moon]

For there's nae luck about the house;
  There's nae luck at aw;
    There's little pleasure in the house
      When our gudeman's awa.
      - There's Nae Luck About the House--Ballad of Cumnor Hall
        [Absence]
