Poem by Robert Burns


To a Young Lady, Miss Jessy Lewars, Dumfries, with Books which the Bard Presented her


THINE be the volumes, Jesay fair,
And with them take the Poets prayer-
That fate may in her fairest page,
With every kindliest, best presage
Of future bliss, enrol thy name;
With native worth, and spotless fame,
And wakeful caution still aware
Of ill-but chief; mans felon snare.
All blameless joys on earth we find,
And all the treasures of the mind-
These be thy guardian and reward;
So prays thy faithful friend, the Bard.
