Fower and Twenty Mermaids Fower and twenty mermaids, Wha left the port o Leith, Tae tempt the fine auld hermit, Wha dwelt upon Inchkeith. Nae boat, nor waft, nor crayer, Nor craft had they, nor oars nor sails; Their lily hands were oars enough, Their tillers were their tails. ________________________________________________________ SC (1948), 176 (no. 332), from Fife.
