Robert Burns

Simmer 's a pleasant time,
   Flowers of every colour;
 The water rins o'er the heugh,
   And I long for my true lover!

 Ay waukin, Oh,
   Waukin still and weary:
 Sleep I can get nane,
   For thinking on my Dearie. -

 When I sleep I dream,
   When I wauk I'm irie;
 Sleep I can get nane,
   For thinking on my Dearie. -
      Ay waukin, Oh...

 Lanely night comes on,
   A' the lave are sleepin:
 I think on my bonie lad,
   And I bleer my een wi' greetin. -
      Ay waukin, Oh...

Footnote : An old song which was rejuvenated by the master hand of Robert Burns. The opening stanza is entirely his but he gave the rest of the song a complete revision and new life.
