To A Violet

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Go, little flower: go bid thy name impart
Each hope, each wish, each beating of my heart;
Go, soothe her sorrows, bid all anguish cease,
Go, be the bearer of thyself - heart's ease.

 

Go, little flower: go bid your name impart
Each hope, each wish, each beating of my heart;
Go, soothe her sorrows, bid all anguish cease,
Go, be the bearer of yourself - heart's ease.
