Famous quotes containing the word banks:
“Ye banks and braes o bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu o care?
Thoult break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o departed joys,
Departed never to return.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
