  • Thy braes were bonnie, Yarrow stream,
    When first on them I met my lover;
    Thy braes how dreary, Yarrow stream,
    When now thy waves his body cover!
    • The Braes of Yarrow
  • Thou hast no sorrow in thy song,
    No winter in thy year.
    • To the Cuckoo, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • Oh could I fly, I'd fly with thee!
    We'd make with joyful wing
    Our annual visit o'er the globe,
    Companions of the spring.
    • To the Cuckoo, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
