Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
252. Lines to John M’Murdo of Drumlanrig
 
 
Sent with some of the Author’s Poems.
 
 
O COULD I give thee India’s wealth,
  As I this trifle send;
Because thy joy in both would be
  To share them with a friend.
 
But golden sands did never grace        5
  The Heliconian stream;
Then take what gold could never buy—
  An honest bard’s esteem.
