Poem by Robert Burns

Peggys Charms

WHERE braving angry winters storms,
  The lofty Ochils rise,
Far in their shade my Peggys charms
  First blest my wondering eyes;
As one who, by some savage stream,
  A lovely gem surveys,
Astonishd doubly, marks it beam
  With arts most polishd blaze.

Blest be the wild, sequeeterd shade,
  And blest the day and hour,
Where Peggys charms I first surveyd,
  When first I felt their power!
The tyrant death with grim control
  May seize my fleeting breath;
But tearing Peggy from my soul
  Must be a stronger death.
