Annie Laurie

Maxwelton’s braes are bonnie
Where early fa’s the dew
And ‘twas there that Annie Laurie
Gave me her promise true.
Gave me her promise true
Which ne’er forgot will be
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doon and dee.
Her brow is like the snowdrift
Her throat is like the swan
Her face it is the fairest
That e’er the sun shone on.
That e’er the sun shone on
And dark blue is her e’e
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doon and dee.

Like dew on th’gowan lying
Is th’ fa’ o’ her fairy feet
And like the winds in summer sighing
Her voice is low and sweet.
Her voice is low and sweet
And she’s a’ the world to me
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doon and dee.

music by Lady John Scott, words by William Douglas and Lady John Scott

The last of the ’Botticelli’s Ladies’ series.
I love the romantic writing of the
nineteenth century and the period
adaptions that have been made for the
movies and PBS mini series made for TV.
I have tried to capture the feeling in these
last two vintage pictures of this series. I have used one of the most popular love songs from my teen years. Remembering is fun.
