Poem by Robert Burns


On Highland Hospitality


A Verse Composed and repeated by Burns, 
to the master of the house, 
on taking leave at a place in the Highlands, 
where he had been hospitably entertained

WHEN deaths dark stream I ferry oer,
  A time that surely shall come,
In Heaven itself Ill ask no more
  Than just a Highland welcome.

1787
