Thank you, Suzanne McGeady for suggesting the word besom….I’d never heard of it!!

Besom: a broom or brush used to sweep the ice in front of the stone to make it slide farther

    Just for fun, here are lyrics to a Scottish song collected by Robert Burns. The chorus is a broom hawker's song used to sell brooms on the street.

    I maun hae a wife, whatsoe'er she be
    An' she be a woman, that's enough for me.

    chorus: Buy broom besoms! Wha will buy them noo?
    Fine heather ringers, better never grew.

    If that she be bonnie, I shall think her right,
    If that she be ugly, where's the odds at night?
    O, an' she be young, how happy I shall be
    If that she be auld, the sooner she will dee.
    If that she be fruitfu', O what joy is there!
    If she should be barren, less will be my care.
    If she like a drappie, she and I'll agree,
    If she dinna like it, there's the mair for me.
    Be she green or greym be she black or fair
    Let her be a woman, I shall seek nae mair.
