Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
134. Fragment of Song—The Night was Still
 
 
THE NIGHT was still, and o’er the hill
  The moon shone on the castle wa’;
The mavis sang, while dew-drops hang
  Around her on the castle wa’;
Sae merrily they danced the ring        5
  Frae eenin’ till the cock did craw;
And aye the o’erword o’ the spring
  Was “Irvine’s bairns are bonie a’.”
