Robert Burns

To Mr McMurdo, with a pound of Lundiefoot Snuff

written in 1789

O could I give thee India's wealth As I this trifle send! Because thy joy in both would be To share them with my Friend. But Golden Sands, Alas, ne'er grace The Heliconian stream: Then take, what Gold shall never buy - An honest Bard's esteem.
