Lines sent to Sir John Whitefoord, Bart (Poem by Robert Burns)

Old Poem



Lines Sent to Sir John Whitefoord, Bart
Of Whitefoord, with the foregoing Poem
By Robert Burns


Thou, who thy honour as thy God rever’st,
Who, save thy mind’s reproach, nought earthly fear’st,
To thee this votive offering I impart,
The tearful tribute of a broken heart.
The friend thou valuedst, I, the patron, lov’d;
His worth, his honour, all the world approv’d,
We’ll mourn till we too go as he has gone,
And tread the dreary path to that dark world unknown.
