Epigram at RoslinInn

by Robert Burns, 1787

My blessings on ye, honest wife!
  I ne'er was here before;
Ye've wealth o' gear for spoon and knife—
  Heart could not wish for more.
Heav'n keep you clear o' sturt and strife,
  Till far ayont fourscore,
And while I toddle on thro' life,
  I'll ne'er gae by your door!
