Bonnie Wee Thing (Poem by Robert Burns)

Classic Poem

Bonnie Wee Thing
By Robert Burns


(1)

Bonnie wee thing, cannie wee thing,
    Lovely wee thing, wert thou mine,
I wad wear thee in my bosom,
    Lest my jewel I should tine.

Wishfully I look and languish
    In that bonnie face o’ thine;
And my heart it stounds wi’ anguish,
    Lest my wee thing be na mine.

(2)

Wit, and grace, and love, and beauty
    In ae constellation shine;
To adore thee is my duty,
    Goddess o’ this soul o’ mine!

Bonnie wee thing, cannie wee thing.
    Lovely wee thing, wert thou mine,
I wad wear thee in my bosom,
    Lest my jewel I should tine!
