Poem by Robert Burns


To Miss Logan, with Beatties Poems, for a New Years Gift


AGAIN the silent wheels of time
  Their annual round have driven,
And you, tho scarce in maiden prime,
  Are so much nearer Heaven.

No gifts have I from Indian coasts
  The infant year to hail;
I send you more than India boasts,
  In Edwins simple tale.

Our sex with guile and faithless love
  Is chargd, perhaps too true;
But may, dear Maid, each lover prove
  An Edwin still to you!

1787
