Summary - In this waulking song, a lullaby to Donald of Sleat, there is a description of the weather, with sunny, cloudless skies. Good weather is wished for the king's son when he comes.

The subject of the song changes and there is a description of a galley which comes into the bay, with three masts of willow, a golden helm, and a well of wine and a well of fresh water in the stern.
