80              TONE-POETRY OF ROBERT BURNS
No. 83. Ance mair I hail thee, thou gloomy December.
Tune : Thro' the lang moor, Scots Musical Museum, 1796, No. 499.
Ance mair I hail thee, thou gloomy December!
Ance mair I hail thee wi' sorrow and care! Sad was the parting thou makes me remember ;
Parting wi' Nancy, O, ne'er to meet mair!
Fond lovers' parting is sweet, painful pleasure, Hope beaming mild on the soft parting hour;
But the dire feeling, O, farewell for ever! Anguish unmingled and agony pure 1
Wild as the winter now tearing the forest, Till the last leaf o1 the slimmer is flown
Such is the tempest has shaken my bosom, Till my last hope and last comfort is gone !
