Translate the poem into modern, familiar English.

"Why dios your brand sae drap wi bluid, Edward,Edward,
Why dois your brand sae drap wi bluid.
why sae sad gang yee O?"
I hae killed my hauke sae guid,
And I had nae mair but hee O."
"Your haukis bluid was nevir sae reid, Edward,Edward,
Your haukis bluid was nevir sae reid,
My deir son I tell thee O."
"O I hae killed my reid roan steid, Mither,mither,
O I hae killed my reid roan steid,
That erst was sae fair and free O."

@emshae,
I think Google will lead u to a lot of dictionaries.

Possibly, Google might recognize the poem and give
u a translation.

@OmSigDAVID,
The moral of the story is Google makes your failing grades into passing grades.

Those little kid tattoos are going to look silly when you get older. Come to think of it, they look silly now!
