ad lib.
Dear Kitty! on thy bonnie brow,
The simmer sun shall shine ; While wintry clouds and winter's gloom
Are gathering dark o'er mine. I'll gie to God my lingerin' hours,
An' Jamie drive awa,' For in this weary, wasted heart
There's nae room for twa.
The creepin' years hae slowly pass'd,
An' I hae struggled Strang, Wi' a broken hope, an' a broken heart,
But it is nae now for lang; My thread o' life is a' but span,
An' I maun gang awa', An' moulder in the clay cauld ground,
Where's nae room for twa.
These beautiful words were written by Susanna Blamire, to a Scottish air, called " The wae fu' Heart."
