A man wearing traditional Scottish garments runs away at dawn on the back of a galloping, wide-eyed horse, while casting a scared glance at the creature standing behind him on the horse’s rump and holding on to the tail.
The caption reads in the original:
Ae spring brought off her master hale,
But left behind her ain gray tail;
The carlin claught her by the rump,
And left poor Maggie scarce a stump.
