The Castle of Edinburgh

By G. F. Maine

(Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute)

"There, watching high the least alarms
  Thy rough, rude fortress gleams afar;
Like some bold vetíran, grey in arms,
  And marked with many a seamy scar;
The pond'rous wall and massy bar,
  Grim rising oer the rugged rock,
Have oft withstood assailing war,
  And oft repelled thí invader's shock."

Burns
