I. LOVE : PERSONAL                            17
'Low in your wintry beds, ye flowers,
Again ye'll flourish fresh and fair; Ye birdies, dumb in with'ring bowers,
Again ye'll charm the vocal air; But here, alas! for me nae mair
Shall birdie charm, or floweret smile; Fareweel the bonie banks of Ayr,
Fareweel! fareweel sweet Ballochmyle !'
Stay, my charmer, can you leave me?
Cruel, cruel to deceive me!
Well you know how much you grieve me:
Cruel charmer, can you go ?
Cruel charmer, can you go?
By my love so ill requited,
By the faith you fondly plighted,
By the pangs of lovers slighted,
Do not, do not leave me so !
Do not, do not leave me so!
