Poem by Robert Burns


* * *


Let not woman eer complain
  	Of inconstancy in love;
Let not woman eer complain,
  	Fickle man is apt to rove:
Look abroad through Natures range,
Natures mighty law is change;
Ladies, would it not be strange,
  	Man should then a monster prove?

Mark the winds, and mark the skies;
  	Oceans ebb, and oceans flow:
Sun and moon but set to rise,
  	Round and round the seasons go.
Why then ask of silly man,
To oppose great Natures plan?
Well be constant while we can 
  	You can be no more, you know.
