Robert Burns

Epigram Addressed To An Artist

written in 1787

Dear Sir, 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.
