Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
229. Song—Anna, thy Charms
 
 
ANNA, thy charms my bosom fire,
  And waste my soul with care;
But ah! how bootless to admire,
  When fated to despair!
 
Yet in thy presence, lovely Fair,        5
  To hope may be forgiven;
For sure ’twere impious to despair
  So much in sight of heaven.
