Poem by Robert Burns


Ca the Yowes


  	Ca the yowes to the knowes,
  	Ca them where the heather grows,
  	Ca them where the burnie rows,
  		My bonnie dearie.

Hark! the mavis evening sang
Sounding Cloudens woods amang;
Then a-faulding let us gang,
  	My bonnie dearie.

Well gae down by Clouden side,
Thro the hazels spreading wide
Oer the waves that sweetly glide
  	To the moon see clearly.

Yonders Cloudens silent towers,
Where at moonshine midnight hours,
Oer the dewy-bending flowers,
  	Fairies dance sae cheery.

Ghaist nor bogle shalt thou fear;
Thourt to love and Heaven sae dear,
Nocht of ill may come thee near,
  	My bonnie dearie.

Fair and lovely as thou art,
Thou heat stown my very heart;
I can die  but canna part,
  	My bonnie dearie.

1789
