Epitaph on a Wag in Mauchline (English)

Lament 'im Mauchline husbands a',
He aften did assist ye;
For had ye staid whole weeks awa'
Your wives they ne're had miss'd ye.

Ye Mauchline bairns as on ye pass,
To school in bands thegither,
O tread ye lightly on his grass,
Perhaps he was your father.

Egy mauchline-i jómadár sírverse (Hungarian)

Sirassátok, ti férjek, azt,
Ki nektek gyakran bésegitett:
Mert azt, ki hetekig elmararadt,
Nem hiányolták nejeitek.

Ti meg, mauchline-i kicsikék,
Ha iskolába mentek,
Ne tapossátok sírja füvét,
Mert ő volt tán, titeket ki nemzett.
