Please, What really matter about this poem?
This is known as a Child Ballad (Child #26) . Francis Child was a folklorist who collected traditional ballads. This version is one of many. It is an Anglicised version of an even older Scottish ballad, The Twa Corbies: As I was walking all alane, I heard twa corbies makin a mane; The tane unto the ither say, Whar sall we gang and dine the-day? In ahint yon auld fail dyke, I wot there lies a new slain knight; And nane do ken that he lies there, But his hawk, his hound an his lady fair. His hound is tae the huntin gane, His hawk tae fetch the wild-fowl hame,   His lady's tain anither mate, So we may mak oor dinner swate. Ye'll sit on his white hause-bane, And I'll pike oot his bonny blue een; Wi ae lock o his gowden hair  We'll theek oor nest whan it grows bare. Mony a one for him makes mane, But nane sall ken whar he is gane; Oer his white banes, whan they are bare, The wind sall blaw for evermair.
