Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
148. To Miss Logan, with Beattie’s Poems
 
 
AGAIN the silent wheels of time
  Their annual round have driven,
And you, tho’ scarce in maiden prime,
  Are so much nearer Heaven.
 
No gifts have I from Indian coasts        5
  The infant year to hail;
I send you more than India boasts,
  In Edwin’s simple tale.
 
Our sex with guile, and faithless love,
  Is charg’d, perhaps too true;        10
But may, dear maid, each lover prove
  An Edwin still to you.
