Robert Burns

Lines To An Old Sweetheart

written in 1786

Once fondly lov'd, and still rememb'red dear, Sweet early Object of my youthful vows, Accept this mark of friendship, warm, sincere, Friendship - 'tis all cold duty now allows. And while you read the simple, artless rhymes, One friendly sigh for him - he asks no more, Who, distant, burns in flaming torrid climes, Or haply lies beneath th' Atlantic roar.
