sawn sown, A LOVER'S COMPLAINT, 91 ,—where Malone wrongly explains it“seen” (Compare Barclay's Ship of Fooles, “And to cause the christen to him to geue confidence
By the false seeds of errour that they sawe
Before his comming, against our fayth and lawe.”
fol. 215, ed. 1570; and Ross's Helenore or the Fortunate Shepherdess, a modern Scottish poem of great merit, first printed in 1768, “Such were the notes that swell'd alang the grove,
Where birds amid the shade declar'd their love,
And might hae sawn content in ony breast,
With grief like hers that had na been opprest.”
p. 201, ed. Longmuir, 1866,— an edition which only wants a fuller glossary to be an excellent one).
