heather

Now westlin winds and slaught’ring guns
Bring Autumn’s pleasant weather;
The moorcock springs on whirring wings
Amang the blooming heather:
Now waving grain, wide o’er the plain, 
Delights the weary farmer:
And the moon shines bright, when I rove at night,
To muse upon my charmer
.
–Robert Burns (1759–96)
