  • Afton Water BY ROBERT BURNS

  • Flow gently, sweet Afton, among thy green braes,

  • Flow gently, I'll sing thee a song in thy praise;

  • My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream, Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her

  • dream.

  • Thou stock-dove, whose echo resounds thro' the glen,

  • Ye wild whistling blackbirds in yon thorny den,

  • Thou green-crested lapwing, thy screaming forbear,

  • I charge you disturb not my slumbering fair.

  • How lofty, sweet Afton, thy neighbouring hills, Far mark'd with the courses of clear winding

  • rills; There daily I wander as noon rises high,

  • My flocks and my Mary's sweet cot in my eye.

  • How pleasant thy banks and green valleys below, Where wild in the woodlands the primroses

  • blow; There oft, as mild Ev'ning sweeps over the

  • lea, The sweet-scented birk shades my Mary and

  • me.

  • Thy crystal stream, Afton, how lovely it glides, And winds by the cot where my Mary resides,

  • How wanton thy waters her snowy feet lave, As gathering sweet flowrets she stems thy

  • clear wave.

  • Flow gently, sweet Afton, among thy green braes,

  • Flow gently, sweet river, the theme of my lays;

  • My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream, Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her

  • dream.
