Kinrara
Kinrara
Robert Couper (1750–1818)
 
RED gleams the sun on yon hill-tap,
  The dew sits on the gowan;
Deep murmurs through her glens the Spey,
  Around Kinrara rowan.
Where art thou, fairest, kindest lass?        5
  Alas! wert thou but near me,
Thy gentle soul, thy melting eye,
  Would ever, ever cheer me.
 
The laverock sings among the clouds,
  The lambs they sport so cheerie,        10
And I sit weeping by the birk:
  O, where art thou, my dearie?
Aft may I meet the morning dew,
  Lang greet till I be weary;
Thou canna, winna, gentle maid!        15
  Thou canna be my dearie.
