True Thomas Excerpt

O see ye not yon narrow road,
  So thick beset wi’ thorns and briers?
That is the Path of Righteousness,
  Though after it but few inquires.

‘And see ye not yon braid, braid road,
  That lies across the lily leven?
That is the Path of Wickedness,
  Though some call it the Road to Heaven.

‘And see ye not yon bonny road
  That winds about the fernie brae?     
That is the Road to fair Elfland,
  Where thou and I this night maun gae.
