This was adapted from a poem by Hamish Henderson

It appears on the album Martyn Bennett - Martyn Bennett

Lyrics is from a pdf and listening

(Hamish)

Floret Silva Undique
The lily, the rose, the rose I lay.
Floret silva undique
Sweet on the air till dark of day.
The bonniest pair ye iver seen
Play chasie on the Meedies green.
Floret silva undique
The Lily, the rose, the rose I lay.

(Martyn)

Floret Silva Undique
The lily, the rose, the rose I lay.
Floret silva undique
Sweet on the air till dark of day.
The bonniest pair ye iver seen
Play chasie on the Meedies green.
Floret silva undique
The Lily, the rose, the rose I lay.

(Martyn)

Flora is the queen of lusty may
The Lily, the rose, the rose I lay.

(Martyn)

Tell-tale leaves on the elm-tree bole
Reekie’s oot for a sabbath stroll.
Sma’ back pipes and they dance a spring.
Over the grave all creatures sing.
The sun gangs doon under yon hill
Jenny and Jake are at it still.
Reekie, tell me my true love’s name.
Floret silva undique

(Martyn)

Floret silva undique
The lily, the rose, the rose I lay.
Floret silva undique
The rocker, the ring and the gowans gay
Floret silva undique
Sweet on the air till dark of day
Flora is queen of lusty May,
The lily, the rose, the rose I lay.

The reading doesn't appear on Hardland - not the original release, at any rate.
