420. Lines of John M’Murdo, Esq

BLEST be M’Murdo to his latest day!
No envious cloud o’ercast his evening ray;
No wrinkle, furrow’d by the hand of care,
Nor ever sorrow add one silver hair!
O may no son the father’s honour stain,
Nor ever daughter give the mother pain!



Poem 420. Lines of John M’Murdo, Esq - Robert Burns
