To Peter Stuart

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Dear Peter, dear Peter,
We poor sons of metre
Are often negleckit, ye ken;
For instance your sheet, man
(Tho' glad I'm to see't, man),
I get it no ae day in ten.

 

Dear Peter, dear Peter,
We poor sons of metre
Are often neglected, you know;
For instance your sheet, man
(Though glad I am to see it, man),
I get it not one day in ten.
