Subject: RE: two verses in Dowie Dens O Yarrow (Janet Russell)
that word 'marrow' above should be 'merrow.' A merrow is a match or equal to something else. Marrow, on the other hand, is in the middle of bones. Precious stuff, because it produces blood cells.
And at one time Hercule Poirot planned to retire and cultivate vegetable marrows, whatever they are, but it didn't last.
