The Dominie Gets The Bairns Telt

Albert Kirk Jr

children repeat after me

that which is correct and good

from one who knows

what is best:

sight not sicht

might not micht

night not nicht

light not licht 

down not doon

brown not broon

town not toon

gown not goon

brew not bree

drew not dree

grew not gree

prew not pree

chipmunk not ettercap

trumpet not clarsach

genius not gomerel

slang not leid

now that you understand 

that which is correct and good

open your books and read

what is best:

Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim’rous beastie…
