Robert Burns (Роберт Бернс)


* * *


How cruel are the parents
  Who riches only prize,
And to the wealthy booby
  Poor woman sacrifice.
Meanwhile the hapless daughter
  Has but a choice of strife;
To shun a tyrant father’s hats,
  Become a wretched wife.

The ravening hawk pursuing,
  The trembling dove thus flies,
To shun impelling ruin
  A while her pinions tries;
Till of escape despairing,
  No shelter or retreat,
She trusts the ruthless falconer,
  And drops beneath his feet.



Robert Burns's other poems:
  1. Damon And Sylvia
  2. Here’s his Health in Water!
  3. The Rantin’ Dog the Daddie O’t
  4. Sleep’st Thou, or Wak’st Thou
  5. The Humble Petition of Bruar Water
