Hello,

I am trying to trace a poem that my mother remember from childhood. I have very few details about it, and infact I'm not even sure the author is well known ! I suspect you will either immediately know the peom I'm talking about or think I'm an absolute loon for assuming this is enough information - but here goes...

The information I have (such that it is !):
- the title is something like 'The little scottish soldiers'
- the poem begins with two children (a boy and a girl) by a brook
- the little girl puts her foot in and that's were the first line comes
from - which is something like 'Oh but it it cold and it is deep'
- soldiers come by looking for Bonny Prince Charles - the children point and send
them off in a direction
- the soldiers come back a kill the children for sending them in the wrong
direction.

Not a nice tale, but one my mother assures me moved her to tears, even as a
somewhat unwilling elocution student !

The information I'm after:
The author, obviously. Also the details of any books you have in stock which contain the above mentioned poem.


Regards,
a very hopeful Vron

Thanks Ladycat !

Sorry the information I have is so pathetic ! I spoke to my mother about it again and she suspects it may also be called 'Scottish Martyrs' or something similiar.

I won't be all that shocked if no information turns up but I really appreciate the effort !

Thanks again,
Veronica
