On Robert Muir

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Now honest William's gaen to Heaven,
I wat na gin't can mend him:
The fauts he had in Latin lay,
For nane in English kent them.

 

Now honest William has gone to Heaven,
I know not whether it can mend him:
The faults he had in Latin lay,
For none in English knew them.
