Robert Burns (Роберт Бёрнс)


On Sensibility


SENSIBILITY, how charming,
  Thou, my friend, canst truly tell;
But distress, with horrors arming,
  Thou hast also known too well!

Fairest flower, behold the lily,
  Blooming in the sunny ray:
Let the blast sweep o’er the valley,
  See it prostrate in the clay.

Hear the wood-lark charm the forest,
  Telling o’er his little joys;
Hapless bird! a prey the surest
  To each pirate of the skies.

Dearly bought the hidden treasure
  Finer feelings can bestow;
Chords that vibrate sweetest pleasure
  Thrill the deepest notes of woe.



Robert Burns's other poems:
  1. Sae Flaxen Were
  2. It Is Na, Jean, Thy Bonnie Face
  3. Bannocks O’ Barley
  4. Thou Hast Left Me Ever, Jamie
  5. Why, Why Tell Thy Lover?
