Poem by Robert Burns


Epithalamium


1. 

O a ye hymeneal powers  
That rule the essence-mixing hours!  
Whether in eastern monarchs bowrs  
         Or Greenland caves,  
A nuptial scene in Machlin towrs  
         Your presence craves.  
 
2. 

Threescore-fyfteen, a blooming bride,  
This night with seventy-four is tyd;  
O mak the bed baith saft an wide  
         Wi canie toil,  
An lay them gently side by side,  
         At least a while.
