Fragment of Song–The Night was Still, Burns

EL Finlairig Sunrise Signed

THE NIGHT was still, and o'er the hill
 The moon shone on the castle wa'
The mavis sang, while dew-drops hang
 Around her on the castle wa'
Sae merrily they danced the ring
 Frae eenin till the cock did craw;
And aye the o'erword o' the spring
 Was Irvine's bairns are bonie a'
