On Jean Armour

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation


O Jeany, thou hast stolen away my soul!
In vain I strive against the lov'd idea:
Thy tender image sallies on my thoughts,
My firm resolves become an easy prey!

 

O Jeany, you have stolen away my soul!
In vain I strive against the loved idea:
Your tender image sallies on my thoughts,
My firm resolves become an easy prey!
