Poem by Robert Burns


Theniel Menziesí Bonnie Mary


IN cowing by the brig oí Dye,
  At Darlet we a blink did tarry;
As day was dawin in the sky
  We drank a health to bonnie Mary.
    Theniel Menziesí bonnie Mary,
      Theniel Menziesí bonnie Mary;
    Charlie Gregor tint his plaidie,
      Kissiní Thenielís bonnie Mary.

Her een sae bright, her brow sae white,
  Her haffet locks as brownís a berry,
Aní aye they dimpled wií a smile
  The rosy cheeks oí bonnie Mary.
    Theniel Menziesí bonnie Mary,
      Theniel Menziesí bonnie Mary;
    Charlie Gregor tint his plaidie,
      Kissiní Thenielís bonnie Mary.

We lap aní danced the lee-lang day,
  Till piper lads were was aní weary,
But Charlie gat the spring to pay
  For kissiní Thenielís bonnie Mary.
    Theniel Menziesí bonnie Mary,
      Theniel Menziesí bonnie Mary;
    Charlie Gregor tint his plaidie,
      Kissiní Thenielís bonnie Mary.
