Poem by Robert Burns


* * *


THOUGH fickle Fortune has deceivd me,-
  She promisd fair and performd but ill;
Of mistress, friends, and wealth bereavd me,-
  Yet I bear a heart shall support me still.
Ill act with prudence as fars Im able,
  But if success I must never find,
Then come misfortune, I bid thee welcome,
  Ill meet thee with an undaunted mind.

1781
