II.--THE TWA BAUBEES. THE TWO COINS
Stately, long-robed, and stepping with ease,
The rich men went up the temple hall;
Hasty, and gripping her two copper coins,
The widow came after, stooped and small (sma': slightly-built).
Their gold rang loud as it fell, and lay
Yellow and glinting, a beautiful haul (braw: of money: substantial; in general, splendid);
But the folk around the Master heard him say
The poor one's (or "the beggar's") coppers were more than it all.
Stately, lang-robit, an' steppin at ease,
The rich men gaed up the temple ha';
Hasty, an' grippin her twa baubees,
The widow cam efter, booit an' sma'.
Their goud rang lood as it fell, an' lay
Yallow an' glintin, bonnie an' braw;
But the fowk roun the Maister h'ard him say
The puir body's baubees was mair nor it a'.
