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.
