    Meet nurse for a poetic child!

    Land of the mountain and the flood,
    Land of my sires! what mortal hand
    Can e'er untie the filial band,
    That knits me to thy rugged strand!

A' the moorlands perfuming.

Let us journey together,
Where glad innocence reigns
'Mang the braes o' Balquhither.

The Scots are poor, cries surly English pride;
True is the charge, nor by themselves denied.
