Mary's dream  (1812) 
Mine ain dear Somebody by Robert Tannahill

Mine ain dear Somebody.

When Gloamin' treads the heels O' Day,
And birds ſit courin' on the ſpray,
Alang the flowery hedge I ſtray
To meet mine ain dear, ſomebody.

The ſcented brier, the fragrant beans
The clover bloom, the dewy green,
A' charm me as I rove, at e'en;
To meer mine ain dear ſomebody

Let warriors prize, the hero's name,
Let mad Ambition tow'r for fame,
I'm happier in my lowly hame,
Obſcurely bliſs'd wi' ſomebody.
