143. Fragment on Sensibility

Written by: Robert Burns | Biography
 | Quotes (31) |
 RUSTICITY’S ungainly form
 May cloud the highest mind;
But when the heart is nobly warm,
 The good excuse will find.


Propriety’s cold, cautious rules
 Warm fervour may o’erlook:
But spare poor sensibility
 Th’ ungentle, harsh rebuke.
