Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sheath and Knife
Mary Humphreys consulted a copy of Poems from Panmure House, and kindly sent me a transcription. At the time, I had thought that she was intending to post it here herself; since she didn't, I'll add it myself once I find it again.

The words that Laura posted are pretty much those of the arrangement recorded by Jean Redpath, for which see the DT file (link above). A collation made from the few available texts, I think, rather than a traditional set in its own right; and generally the one that people know who have learned it off a record at one remove or more.

That's context, of course, and not a value judgement.
