Fragment, Damon And Sylvia Robert Burns Song

Poetry of the Ploughman Robert Burns Song Fragment, Damon And Sylvia

Tune— The Tither Morn.

Yon wandering rill that marks the hill,
And glances o’er the brae, Sir,
Slides by a bower, where mony a flower
Sheds fragrance on the day, Sir;
There Damon lay, with Sylvia gay,
To love they thought no crime, Sir,
The wild birds sang, the echoes rang,
While Damon’s heart beat time, Sir.
