Anyone recognize the pattern this is based on?
"Daft Jamie", from Four New Songs, pub. J. McNairn, Newton Stewart (1829, presumably)
O! dark was the midnight when Hare fled away,
Not a star in the sky gave him one cheering ray,
But still now and then, would the blue lightnings glare,
And some strange cries assail him, like shrieks of despair
Over vale, over hill, I will watch thee for ill,
I will haunt all thy wanderings and follow thee still.
