THROUGH THE

LAND OF

OF BURNS.

.BY

ARCHIBALD R. ADAMSON,

AUTHOR OF “RAMBLES ROUND KILMARNOCK,” &c.

“ Thrice hallow'd the land of our Minstrel's birth,

The fields that once gladden'd his eye,
The echoes that rang to his woe and his mirth,

And the mountains that bounded his sky!
Lo! there is the scene of his own Vision-dream-

The mantle his Coila then wore,
Still flower'd with the forest, enstriped with the stream,
And fringed with the fret of the shore !"
