Robert Burns Quotes

    The Rigs O' Barley

    It was upon a Lammas night,
    When corn rigs are bonnie,
    Beneath the moon's unclouded light,
    I held away to Annie:
    The time flew by wi' tentless heed
    Till 'tween the late and early,
    Wi' sma' persuasion, she agreed
    To see me thro' the barley.
    Corn rigs, an' barley rigs,
