(He looks around the room one last time. There is a smile on his face that seems a bit broader than the last.)

This one worked. I liked it.

(He walks out of the door into the soft wet snow, looking for the trails they left. There, not threefeet away, a tired, worn door with a sliding peephole hangs between two trees. He approaces it slowly, taking in all the changes that walking to it brings. He knocks...)

Max sent me.

(The door opens, and his long black coat is now shorter, styled to the suit he wears. The drum still hangs by his side, now in a bag of leather, but the Blunderbuss is missing and a single action bulldog fourty four hangs in the holster under his arm. A dollar Havana is in his hand, looking for a light...)

My momma done told me, when I was in knee pants....

(The door closes behind him, and he is gone.)

Amos, them that asks no questions dinna get told lies, I'm the furthest thing from a yuppie you'll ever find in Mudcat. I captured Pirates, free'd slaves and smuggled French brandy fer years, Aye and Lady Emma is my daughter though she dont know it, born to a rich noblemans daughter married to a Duke. If I put a sovereign on the table fer me friends comfort, enjoy the food and drink, yer right welcome. Remember the old Irish saying "I realized fear one morning when the horn of the Fox hunter sounds, And it came to me that when everyone is chasing the poor bloody fox, Tis best to be dressed like the hounds" Dont let the clothes and rough manner fool ye, I'm in disguise. With a knowing wink to Amos, another round here please LEJ, and keep that good music playing this is a fine place ye have here. Good company and friends are hard to find in the wilds, but we are amongst friends, so lets have a dance tonight, and invite the ladies round.....

O, my luve is like a red, red rose,
that's newly sprung in June.
O, my love is like a melodie,
that's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair thou art, my bonnie lass,
so deep in luve am I,
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
and the rocks melt wi' the sun!
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
while the sands of life shall run.

And fare the weel, my only luve!
And fare the well awhile!
And I will come again, my love.
Tho it were ten thousand mile!

Ahhh Susan what a song, even the bear is crying..... Robbie Burns you wrote a fine one there laddie..A toast to yer talent mate....LEJ a glass of yer best fer all hands in the house, here's a sovereign to cover the bill...

I fancy myself related to the species and my husband quite agrees) I have made so many biscuits and pies over the past few days that I am ready to rest and have a bit of that lovely port. It bein the 25th of January, would anyone join me in singin' Aye Fond Kiss, It Was A For Our Rightfu King, or My Love is Like a Red Red Rose, or if those are too sedate, we could do Nine Inch Will Please a Lady.

Fine tune, I do believe. And I am like to hear no finer!

More port, good friends? I have several more bottles before I am done.

"She was in a flowry' garden when first she caught my eye, And I was a passing soldier, she smiled as I passed by. The flowers she held were fresh and fair, and her lips were full and red. And as I passed that shady bower, these were the words she said;

Last night we spoke of love, and now we're forced to part, Y' leave to the sound of a marching drum, and the beat of a lover's heart."

There was a fair maid I knew in the homeland. Dark of hair and eye, but pure honey in her soul. By all the powers, I wish I could see her now!

Sergeant! Are you a sportin' man? I've a few bits of cards about me, and a sure hand at the pasteboards is a lonely thing in these parts.

Mister Mario, you can heer the MIDI rict here. It's at the bottom of the page. Click on MIDI to hear it--but close out the website window--or the Machaut piece will keep playing and you won't bee able to heer the MIDI. The words are:

Flow my tears, fall from your springs!
Exiled forever, let me mourn
Where night's blackbird, her sad infamy sings
There let me live forlorn.

Down, vain lights, shine you no more!
No nights are dark enough for those
That in despair their lost fortunes deplore
Light doth but shame disclose.

Never may my woes be relieved, since pity is fled
And tears, and sighs, and groans
My weary days, my weary days
Of all joys have deprived.

From the highest spire of contentment, my fortune is thrown
And fear, and grief, and pain,
For my deserts, for my deserts
Are my hopes, since hope is gone.

Hark! You shadows that in darkness dwell,
Learn to condemn light.
Happy, happy they that in hell feel
Not the the world's despite.

(Lifts head from moving tableau)"What hempen homespuns have we swaggering here???Faith, little rustic groundling, thou hast some crochets in thy head. Were I a denizen of the realms of gold, your, um, paraphenalia might well ornament a theme, swell a progress, defy augury. Yet, I do desire we might be better strangers!" (extends hand in pose of Brutus with cabal of conspirators)

When and I was but a little bitty boy
With hey and a ho and the wind and the rain
A foolish thing was but a toy
For the rain it raineth ev'ry day!

(Shakes head dumfounded)

I jes' remembered anudder one, but I forgot it... oh..."It was a Lover and His Lass", with a heay and a Ho and a hey-nonnie-no! But I think I'll go visit the pit about now.

(Staggers out the door into the biting wind, which is eerily lit with the first traces of dawnlight. The party has run the night through, but with pie for breakfast no-one shows signs of letting up. Somewhere on the frozen tundra, a gray wolf howls hungrily.)
