ON CHLORIS

Robert Burns wrote many poems and songs in praise of his “Chloris” – Jean Lorimer, a woman friend who inspired his muse over the years. The sloe is the fruit of the blackthorn tree, much enjoyed today by lovers of sloe-gin.

"Requesting me to give her a Spring of Blossomed Thorn.

From the white-blossom'd sloe my dear Chloris requested

A sprig, her fair breast to adorn:

No, by Heavens! I exclaim'd, let me perish, if ever

I plant in that bosom a thorn!"
