Poem by Robert Burns

* * *

COME, let me take thee to my breast,
  And pledge we neer shall sunder;
And I shall spurn as vilest dust
  The warlds wealth and grandeur:
And do I hear my Jeanie own
  That equal transports move her?
I ask for dearest life alone
  That I may live to love her.

Thus in my arms, wi all thy charms,
  I clasp my countless treasure;
Ill seek nae mair o heaven to share,
  Than sic a moments pleasure:
And by thy een, sae bonnie blue,
  I swear Im thine for ever!
And on thy lips I seal my vow,
  And break it shall I never.

Robert Burns
