WHY, WHY TELL THY LOVER

October 4, 2018

Robert Burns sent this fragment to the collector, George Thomson, in July 1795

 

“WHY, why tell thy lover, Bliss he never must enjoy;

Why, why undeceive him, And give all his hopes the lie?

 

O why, while fancy, raptured, slumbers, Chloris, Chloris all the theme,

Why, why would’st thou cruel Wake thy lover from his dream.”
