Robert Burns

Inconstancy in Love

written in 1794

Let not Woman e'er complain Of inconstancy in love; Let not Woman e'er complain, Fickle Man is apt to rove: Look abroad through Nature's range, Nature's mighty law is CHANGE; Ladies would it not seem 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 Nature's plan? We'll be constant while we can You can be no more, you know.
