For Robert Aiken, Esq.

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Know thou, O stranger to the fame
Of this much lov'd, much honour'd name!
(For none that new him need be told),
A warmer heart Death ne'er made cold.

Know you, O stranger to the fame
Of this much loved, much honoured name!
(For none that new him need be told),
A warmer heart Death never made cold.
