Poem by Robert Burns

Epigram Written at Inverary

WHOEER he be that sojourns here,
  I pity much his case,
Unless he come to wait upon
  The Lord their God, his Grace.
Theres naething here but Highland pride.
  And Highland scab and hunger;
If Providence has sent me here.
  Twas surely in his anger.

24 1787
