• ae fond kiss

    This is often quoted as poetry but is in fact a song. By Robert Burns, Scotland's well known poet and balladeer.

    Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
    Ae fareweel, and then, for ever!
    Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
    Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
    Who shall say that fortune grieves him,
    While the star of hope she leaves him?
    Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me:
    Dark despair around benights me.

    I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy,
    Naething could resist my Nancy;
    But to see her was to love her;
    Love but her, and love for ever.--
    Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
    Had we never lov'd sae blindly,
    Never met--or never parted,
    We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

    Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest!
    Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest!
    Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
    Peace, enjoyment, love and pleasure.
    Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
    Ae fareweel, alas! for ever!
    Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
    Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!

     

    Written as a love song although often regarded as a platonic love. Robert Burns regularly travelled throughout Scotland and whilst staying in Edinburgh, he established a platonic relationship with Mrs Agnes Maclehose. Burns wrote 'Ae fond kiss' after their final meeting and sent it to Mrs McLehose shortly before she left Scotland for Jamaica to be with her husband.
