A Fond Kiss

(Robert Burns poem / Live on Peel Acres 01-22-04)

A fond kiss, and then we sever
A farewell, and then forever
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
Nothing could resist my Nancy
But to see her was to love her

Love but her, and love forever
Had we never lov'd say kindly
Had we never lov'd say blindly

Never met – or never parted
We had ne'er been broken-hearted

Fare thee well, thou first and fairest
Fare thee well, thou best and dearest
Thine be like a joy and treasure

Peace, enjoyment, love, and pleasure
A fond kiss, and then we sever
A farewell, alas, forever

Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee

Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee
