Blue the lift and braw the dawn
O' yer comin' here amang
Strangers wha hae luved ye lang!
Strangers tae ye we maun be,
Yet tae us ye're kenned a wee
By the writin's ye hae done,
Robert Louis Stevenson.

Syne ye've pit yer pen tae sic'
Tales it stabbt us tae the quick --
Whiles o' tropic isles an' seas
An' o' gowden treesuries --
Tales o' deid men's banes; an' tales
Swete as sangs o' nightingales
When the nune o' mirk's begun --
Robert Louis Stevenson.

Sae we hail thee! nane the less
For the "burr" that ye caress
Wi' yer denty tongue o' Scots,
Makin' words forget-me-nots
O' yer bonnie braes that were
Sung o' Burns the Poemer --
And that later lavrock, one
Robert Louis Stevenson.
