A man carrying a bludgeon stands by a pond, at night, stricken with fear as he meets the Devil
With you myself, I got a fright:
Beyond the pond,
You, like a clump of rushes, stood in sight,
With waving moan.

Description

A man carrying a bludgeon stands by a pond, at night, stricken with fear as he meets the Devil which stretches out a glowing hand.

The caption reads in the original:

Wi you mysel, I gat a fright:
Ayont the lough,
Ye, like a rash-buss, stood in sight,
Wi’ waving sugh.
