Poem by Robert Burns

* * *

WILT thou be my dearie?
When sorrow wrings thy gentle heart,
Wilt thou let me cheer thee?
By the treasure of my soul,
Thats the love I bear thee!
I swear and vow that only thou
Shalt ever be my dearie-
Only thou, I swear and vow,
Shalt ever be my dearie.

Lassie, say thou loes me;
Or if thou wilt na be my sin,
Say na thoult refuse me:
If it winna, canna be,
Thou for thine may choose me,
Let me, lassie, quickly die,
Trusting that thou loes me-
Lassie, let me quickly die,
Trusting that thou loes me.
