An' afore he turn'd to sit doon,
He dichted the sweat aff his broo, an' cried
At his scholars to gather roun'.
"Ledgie Cooper" by Alexander Anderson

Wi' his broo on the airm o' the chair;
Then he gaed to the door to cry in the weans
That were rinnin' here an' there.
"Ledgie Cooper" by Alexander Anderson

As we paidled up the burn,
Till they splutter'd to win frae oor sicht in the broo,
Wi' mony a jouk an' turn.

Aneath the white mutches there's mony a broo,
Wan, wallow't, an' runklet, an dowie yenoo;
Was ance like the lily, an' gowden an' sheen,
The lovelocks that shaded the bonnie blue een.

The thrang to the poopit, wi' grace on his broo—
A herald o' mercy, commission'd by God
To point us to heaven, an' guide on the road.

An' they've set the red mark o' auld Cain on yer broo;
An' the bairns o' yer bairns that are yet to be born,
Will be harry't wi' taxes, an' put to the horn.
