On Wm. Graham Of Mossknowe

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

'Stop thief!' Dame Nature call'd to Death,
As Willie drew his latest breath:
'How shall I make a fool again?
My choicest model thou hast taen.'

 

'Stop thief!' Dame Nature called to Death,
As Willie drew his latest breath:
'How shall I make a fool again?
My choicest model you have taken.'
