Ayr (River)
Ayr, gurgling, kissed his pebbled shore,
  O’erhung with wild woods, thickening green;
The fragrant birch and hawthorn hoar
  Twined amorous round the raptured scene.
        BurnsTo Mary in Heaven.
Farewell, my friends! farewell, my foes!
My peace with these, my love with those.
The bursting tears my heart declare;
Farewell, the bonnie banks of Ayr.
        BurnsThe Banks of Ayr.
