Robert Burns: Inscription For An Altar Of Independence: At Kerroughtree, the Seat of Mr. Heron.

Inscription For An Altar Of Independence At Kerroughtree, the Seat of Mr. Heron.
1795
Type: Inscription

Thou of an independent mind,
With soul resolv’d, with soul resign’d;
Prepar’d Power’s proudest frown to brave,
Who wilt not be, nor have a slave;
Virtue alone who dost revere,
Thy own reproach alone dost fear-
Approach this shrine, and worship here.
