    Tune--"_Bonnie wee thing._"

    ["Composed," says the poet, "on my little idol, the charming, lovely
    Davies."]

    I.

    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.

    II.

    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!
