Ae Fond Kiss

Rating: 3.1
1 Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;

4 Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
5 Who shall say that Fortune grieves him,
6 While the star of hope she leaves him?
7 Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me;
8 Dark despair around benights me.

9 I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy,
10 Naething could resist my Nancy;

The Scottish spelling only adds to the charm of this love poem by the great Robert Burns! Aptly chosen as Poem of the Day.

Fantastic love song depicting joy on finding ones love and sense of jubilation that follows and acute pain over severing relations with that love and parting for ever. A great classic and well deserved classic poem of the day.

My first time reading this by Burns, and I’m thinking, not for nothing does Burns have a good reputation as a poet. This is thoroughly accessible, flows well, and notice great phrasing in lines 4,6, and 23. -GK
