531. Song-‘Twas na her bonie blue e’e

‘TWAS na her bonie blue e’e was my ruin,
Fair tho’ she be, that was ne’er my undoin’;
‘Twas the dear smile when nae body did mind us,
‘Twas the bewitching, sweet, stown glance o’ kindness:
‘Twas the bewitching, sweet, stown glance o’ kindness.

Sair do I fear that to hope is denied me,
Sair do I fear that despair maun abide me,
But tho’ fell fortune should fate us to sever,
Queen shall she be in my bosom for ever:
Queen shall she be in my bosom for ever.

Chloris, I’m thine wi’ a passion sincerest,
And thou hast plighted me love o’ the dearest!
And thou’rt the angel that never can alter,
Sooner the sun in his motion would falter:
Sooner the sun in his motion would falter.
