24               TONE-POETRY OF ROBERT BURNS
No. 25. How pleasant the banks.
Tune : Bhannerach dhon na chrie Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 157.
How pleasant the banks of the clear winding Devon,
With green spreading bushes and flow'rs blooming fair! But the boniest flow'r on the banks of the Devon
Was once a sweet bud on the braes of the Ayr. Mild be the sun on this sweet blushing flower,
In the gay rosy morn, as it bathes in the dew! And gentle the fall of the soft vernal shower,
That steals on the evening each leaf to renew!
