ADDRESS

TO

EDINBURG H.

I.
EDINA! Scotia's darling seat!

All hail thy palaces and tow'rs, Where once beneath a monarch's feet

Sat Legislation's sov'reign pow'rs! From marking wildly-scatter'd flow'rs,

As on the banks of Ayr I stray'd, And singing, lone, the ling'ring hours,

I shelter in thy honour'd shade.

[blocks in formation]

II. Here wealth still swells the golden tide,

As busy Trade his labour plies ; There Architecture's noble pride

Bids elegance and splendour rise ; Here Justice, from her native skies,

High wields her balance and her rod; There Learning, with his eagle eyes,

Seeks Science in her coy abode.

III.
Thy sons, Edina! social, kind,

With open arms the stranger hail ; Their views enlarg'd, their lib’ral mind,

Above the narrow, rural vale ; Attentive still to sorrow's wail,

Or modest merit's silent claim ; And never may their sources fail !

And never envy blot their name!

IV. Thy daughters bright thy walks adorn,

Gay as the gilded summer sky, Sweet as the dewy milk-white thorn,

Dear as the raptur'd thrill of joy ! Fair Burnet strikes th' adoring eye,

Heav'n's beauties on my fancy shine ; I see the Sire of Love on high,

And own his work indeed divine !
