In poetry:

I gaed to gather in my claes
That bleachin' lay by Luggie burn,
But ere I wan the eerie howm
I grew sae fley'd I thocht to turn.
"The Greetin' Bairn" by Janet Hamilton
He never gaed the bogle brae
Again at witchin' time o' nicht;
An' but that nicht at Luggie burn
He ne'er gat sic anither fricht.
"The Greetin' Bairn" by Janet Hamilton
I saw ye at the gloamin' fa',
Gaun linkin' doun by Luggie burn,
Juist whaur aroun' the eerie howm,
Ca'd Spunkie Howe, it taks a turn.

He rais'd her up, she sune cam' roun',
(Ere lang the twa were man an' wife,)
But ne'er, whan dark, by Luggie burn
She gaed as lang as she had life.
"The Greetin' Bairn" by Janet Hamilton
Then flow, thou Luggie, with a softer gush;
Thou wert his boyhood's worship; flow along,
While the kind years grant him his deathbed wish,
And make him the fifth name in unfledged song.
"David Gray" by Alexander Anderson
There's nae simmer days like the simmer days then,
Sae bricht an' sae bonny they lay on the glen;
O the wannerin' Luggie, that wimplet sae clear,
Thro' hazle, an' hawthorn, an' rose-busket breer.
