We twa hae paidl’d in the burn Frae morning sun till dine, But seas between us braid hae roar’d Sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne, We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet For auld lang syne! ROBERT BURNS MY LUVE’S LIKE A RED, RED ROSE O my Luve’s like a red, red rose, That’s newly sprung in June: O my Luve’s like the melodie That’s sweetly played in tune!

Bid that heart stay, and it will stay To honor thy decree; Or bid it languish quite away, And ’t shall do so for thee. Bid me to weep, and I will weep While I have eyes to see; And having none, yet I will keep A heart to weep for thee. Bid me despair, and I’ll despair Under that cypress tree; Or bid me die, and I will dare E’en death, to die for thee. Thou art my life, my love, my heart, The very eyes of me; And hast command of every part, To live and die for thee. ROBERT HERRICK WHENAS IN SILKS MY JULIA GOES Whenas in silks my Julia goes, Then, then, methinks, how sweetly flows That liquefaction of her clothes.
