Thread Name: Acceptable adjectives in folk songs
Subject: Acceptable adjectives in folk songs
A couple of years back, Spaw gave use a hilarious DIY, build your own country song kit.
I was wondering what adjectives are acceptable in a folk song with at least some roots a couple of hundred years old. Adjectival phrases count too, of course.
hands (female) lily-white
steed milk white
maid bonny/tender fair
hares & hair (female) - bonny black
What other acceptable adjectives are there?
