Scottish Wedding Reading - O'er The Muir Amang The Heather
by Jean Glover
Comin' through the craigs o'Kyle,
Amang the bonnie bloomin' heather,
There I met a bonnie lassie
Keepin' a' her flocks thegither.
Says I, my dear, where is thy hame?
In muir or dale, pray tell me whither?
Says she, I tent the fleecy flocks
That feed amang the bloomin' heather.
We laid us down upon a bank,
Sae warm and sunnie was the weather;
She left her flocks at large to rove
Amang the bonnie bloomin' heather.
She charmed my heart, and aye sinsyne
I couldna think on any ither;
By sea and sky! She shall be mine
The bonnie lass amang the heather.
This reading is suitable for a civil ceremony. This is a great reading for a
Scottish wedding as it is by the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns (aka Rabbie Burns)
