Epigram Addressed To An Artist

     Dear _____, I'll gie ye some advice,
     You'll tak it no uncivil:
     You shouldna paint at angels mair,
     But try and paint the devil.

     To paint an Angel's kittle wark,
     Wi' Nick, there's little danger:
     You'll easy draw a lang-kent face,
     But no sae weel a stranger.—R. B.
