Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
74. Fragment—Her Flwoing Locks
 
 
HER flowing locks, the raven’s wing,
Adown her neck and bosom hing;
How sweet unto that breast to cling,
  And round that neck entwine her!
 
Her lips are roses wat wi’ dew,        5
O’ what a feast her bonie mou’!
Her cheeks a mair celestial hue,
  A crimson still diviner!
