TO

LOVERS OF SCOTLAND

EVERYWHERE

Dear Scotia! evermore more dear

To loyal sons in every land; Strong in a race that knew not fear,

And for man's freedom dared to stand:
Ay, dearer for thy songs that float

Like thistle-down o'er land and sea,
And strike the universal note
Of love, and faith, and liberty.

-IN CLOVER AND HEATHER.
