Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
421. Epitaph on a Lap-dog
 
 
Named Echo
 
 
IN wood and wild, ye warbling throng,
  Your heavy loss deplore;
Now, half extinct your powers of song,
  Sweet Echo is no more.
 
Ye jarring, screeching things around,        5
  Scream your discordant joys;
Now, half your din of tuneless sound
  With Echo silent lies.
