Burns, Robert: Epitaph on a Wag in Mauchline

Portre of Burns, Robert

Epitaph on a Wag in Mauchline (English)

Lament 'im Mauchline husbands a',
He aften did assist ye;
For had ye staid whole weeks awa'
Your wives they ne're had miss'd ye.

Ye Mauchline bairns as on ye pass,
To school in bands thegither,
O tread ye lightly on his grass,
Perhaps he was your father.
