406. Lines Inscribed in a Lady’s Pocket Almanack

GRANT me, indulgent Heaven, that I may live,
To see the miscreants feel the pains they give;
Deal Freedom’s sacred treasures free as air,
Till Slave and Despot be but things that were.



Poem 406. Lines Inscribed in a Lady’s Pocket Almanack - Robert Burns
