Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
315. Song—Out over the Forth
 
 
OUT over the Forth, I look to the North;
  But what is the north and its Highlands to me?
The south nor the east gie ease to my breast,
  The far foreign land, or the wide rolling sea.
 
But I look to the west when I gae to rest,        5
  That happy my dreams and my slumbers may be;
For far in the west lives he I loe best,
  The man that is dear to my babie and me.
