Poem by Robert Burns

Canst Thou Leave Me Thus?

  CANST thou leave me thus, my Katy?
  Canst thou leave me thus, my Katy?
  Well thou knowst my aching heart,
  And canst thou leave me thus for pity?

Is this thy plighted, fond regard,
  Thus cruelly to part, my Katy?
Is this thy faithful swains reward-
  An aching, broken heart, my Katy?

Farewell! and neer such sorrows tear
  That fickle heart of thine, my Katy!
Thou mayst find those will love thee dear-
  But not a love like mine, my Katy.
