True-Love, an Thou Be True
By Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832)
TRUE-LOVE, 1 an thou be true,
  Thou hast ane kittle part to play,
For fortune, fashion, fancy, and thou
  Maun strive for many a day.
I’ve kend by mony a friend’s tale,        5
  Far better by this heart of mine,
What time and change of fancy avail,
  A true love-knot to untwine.
Note 1. From The Bride of Lammermoor. [back]
