GUEST,iains Info: The Great Selkie - earthly nouriss (11) RE: Info: The Great Selkie - earthly nouriss 18 Apr 21


. An earthly nourris sits and sings,
And aye she sings, "Ba lilly wean,
Little ken I my bairn's father,
Far less the land that he staps in.

From the Child ballad number 113(above) "my bairn" would state that the nourris is actually the mother. Other variants may lead to a different conclusion.
