Was Scotland's National Bard A Fool For Love?
A Rosebud By My Early Walk - Verse 1
A rosebud by my early walk,
Adown a corn-encloséd bawk,
Sae gently bent its thorny stalk,
All on a dewy morning.
Ere twice the shades o' dawn are fled,
In a its crimson glory spread,
And drooping rich the dewy head,
It scents the early morning.
Bonnie Peggy Alison - Verse 1
When in my arms, wi’ a’ thy charms,
I clasp my countless treasure, O!
I seek nae mair o’ Heaven to share
Than sic a moment’s pleasure, O!
Clarinda, Mistress Of My Soul - Verse 1
Clarinda, mistres of my soul,
The measur'd time is run!
The wretch beneath the dreary pole
So marks his latest sun.
Eppie Adair - Verse 1
By love and by beauty,
By law and by duty,
I swear to be true to
My Eppie Adair!
Farewell To Eliza - Verse 1
From thee, Eliza, I must go,
And from my native shore;
The cruel fates between us throw A boundless ocean's roar:
But boundless oceans, roaring wide,
Between my love and me,
They never, never can divide
My heart and soul from thee.
Auld Lang Syne
It's a common misconception that Auld Lang Syne is by Robert Burns. It's traditional and predates him by several years. I can offer no other info than that, sorry.
