ON CHLORIS BEING ILL

October 3, 2018

Robert Burns wrote this song with Jean Lorimer (Chloris) in mind. The tune is the same as  “Aye wauken O”.

 

"Long, long the night, Heavy comes the morrow

While my soul's delight is on her bed of sorrow.

 

Can I cease to care? Can I cease to languish,

While my darling Fair Is on the couch of anguish?

Ev'ry hope is fled, Ev'ry fear is terror,

Slumber ev'n I dread, Ev'ry dream is horror.

 

Hear me, Powers Divine! Oh, in pity, hear me!

Take aught else of mine, But my Chloris spare me!    

Long, long the night, Heavy comes the morrow

While my soul's delight is on her bed of sorrow. "
