Say Nithin

A wheen a months ago I wrote aboot tha local version o Rabbie Burns' Epistle to a Young Friend that wus aftin quoted in mae hoose as a wean.

Aye ricth han your story tell
Whun wi a bosom crony
But aa keep something ta yorsel
Ye dinne tell ta onnie.

Aye free, aff-han', your story tell,
When wi' a bosom crony;
But still keep something to yoursel',
Ye scarcely tell to ony:

Whun I axt mae mither whut it meant she said,

"Whutiver ye say say nithin."
