Poem by Robert Burns


The Banks of Nith (To thee, lovd Nith, thy gladsome plains)


To thee, lovd Nith, thy gladsome plains,
  Where late wi careless thought I rangd,
Though prest wi care and sunk in woe,
  To thee I bring a heart unchangd.

I love thee, Nith, thy banks and braes,
  Tho memry there my bosom tear;
For there he rovd that brake my heart,
  Yet to that heart, ah, still how dear!

1789
