Mary's Dream
by John Lowe

"The author of this beautiful poem was John Lowe, a son of the gardener at Kenmure castle in Galloway. Having studied for the church, he was employed as tutor by Mr. Macghie at Airds, an estate near the confluence of the Dee and the Ken. While residing there, about the year 1772, a gentleman named Alexander Miller, the lover of Miss Mary Macghie, was drowned at sea—and this gave occasion to the song which preserves Lowe's name." —Alexander Whitelaw, The Book of Scottish Song (1843)
