Summary - A man's song of unrequited love. He has been forsaken by the girl he loves. She had told him through the winter months that there would be no other but him, but when a wealthier man came along she turned her back on him. He first met her when he was scything barley at the local manse, and she was tying the barley sheaves; at dinner he noticed her beauty and comeliness. Towards the end of the song he shows his bitterness when he says that the extent of his love for her was not so great that it could not be taken back, or completely forgotten, and that he could easily find another to take her place.
