JOCKIE'S TA'EN THE PARTING KISS
Robert Burns

Jockie's taen the parting kiss,
O'er the mountains he is gane,
And with him is a' my bliss,
Nought but griefs with me remain,
Spare my Luve, ye winds that blaw,
Plashy sleets and beating rain!
Spare my Luve, thou feath'ry snaw,
Drifting o'er the frozen plain!
 

When the shades of evening creep
O'er the day's fair, gladsome e'e,
Sound and safely may he sleep,
Sweetly blythe his waukening be.
He will think on her he loves,
Fondly he'll repeat her name;
For where'er he distant roves,
Jockie's heart is still the same.

Footnote:  Robert Burns wrote this fine song for inclusion in Johnson's Museum but it actually first appeared in Dr Currie's editions of his work.
