Come end o’ growin’ season,
One Eye has done work ont nine
an goes wi Baugi to see
Eavy wi Drink abaht sup o’ mead.
‘Eavy wi Drink says “Tha
offered what’s mine, Baugi
wi art a word to me.
No, he cannot av a sup.
The bleeding gall o’ ye!”
One Eye, says ‘Abaht r bargain?
“If he won’t agree to yourn
bargain wi me then
you’ve got to gi us leg up t’
get inta Tha Wanna Scrap’s cave.”
” I’m ashamed o’ ma bloody bro.
Aye, I’ll help thee. It’s least…”
Baugi leads way to nearest part
o’ t’ cave. One Eye teks an auger
from unna his cloak, hands it
to Baugi for him to drill
through t’ rock. Baugi does so,
and after much towin’ announces
“T ‘ oyle’s finished.”
One Eye blows inta t’oyle
an rock-dust blows back
inta his kite,
he knows Baugi lies.
One Eye says “Tha should finish
what tha start.” So giant drills agin.
Baugi proclaims ” T’oyle’s done”
One Eye blows into t’ oyle.
There’s no blowback. One Eye
says “Cheers mate.” changes
inta a snake an slithers through t’oyle.
Baugi stabs auger atta him
but One Eye meks it through
Once inside, he changes agin
inta a young man an meks his way
to where Tha Wanna Scrap guards
mead. He wins her favour an she says
“If tha’ll sleep with us fo’ three neets
I’ll gi ye three sips o’ us mead. ”
Atta’d third night, One Eye goes
t’ mead, which is in three vats, drinks contents on all in single sup.
He changes into an eagle,
flies off toward big lads oam
with his prize in his throat.
‘Eavy Wi Drink discovers One Eyes’ trick changes to an eagle an all an giz chase
When the big lads see boss
ont way wi ‘Eavy Wi Drink close
behind they set art several
vessels at edge o’ t’ oam.
One Eye reaches oam
afore ‘Eavy can catch him,
and ‘Eavy backs off.
As One Eye comes to t’ vessels
he throws up mead into them
like a bird to its bairns.
Few drops fall from his beak to us
here. These drops are t’ source on all
skills a bad an mediocre poets an scholars.
True poets and scholars
One Eye giz his mead
hissen and wi care.
Raise thee jars nar, a final
as tha needs a kip.
Time t’ get some
shuteye an fast on.
