Poem by Robert Burns

Written on a Blank Leaf of One of Miss Hannah Mores Works, Which a Lady Had Given him

THOU flattering mark of friendship kind,
Still may thy pages call to mind
  The dear, the beauteous donor:
Though sweetly female every part,
Yet such a head, and more-the heart
  Does both the sexes honour.
She showd her taste refined and just
  When she selected thee,
Yet deviating own I must,
  For so approving me.
    But kind still Ill mind still
      The giver in the gift;
    Ill bless her and wiss her
      A Friend aboon the lift.
