Poem by Robert Burns

Sae Far Awa

O SAD and heavy should I part,
  But for her sake, sae far awa;
Unknowing what my way may thwart,
  My native land sae far awa.
Thou that of a things Maker art,
  That formd this Fair sae far awa,
Gie body strength, then Ill neer start
  At this my way sae far awa.

How truer is love to pure desert!
  Like mine for her, sae far awa:
And nocht can heal my bosoms smart,
  While, oh! she is sae far awa.
Nane other love, nane other dart,
  I feel but hers, sae far awa;
But fairer never touchd a heart
  Tuan hers, the fair sae far awa.
