A fond kiss, and then we sever;
A farewell, and then forever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,

    A lot of yearning, desire, and hope. An intangible love often dreamt of, never forgotten, treasured. Much to appearance, maybe delusion not true. (Report) Reply

    Thank you, Kevin Straw, for pointing out the errors made in transliteration to modern English. Those points certainly DO make a difference. To whomever posted this poem: have a care, sir or ms.! It should press upon your conscience to right the errors you have made. Can we hope that you will do so? (Report) Reply

    Well said Kevin. It's a crime to ruin such a poem with ignorance.
    It's worth looking for Eddi Reader's version(s) of this on youtube - she sings it with real passion and with the proper pronounciation. Naebody does it better: -) (Report) Reply

    How disappointing to see this great lyric presented so badly. The heart of it has been torn out by an attempt to anglicise the dialect. Also there are bad errors in the “translation”:

    “ae” is “one” not “a”
    “sae” is “so” not “say”
    “ilka” is “every” not “like”

    The first error changes the meaning of the line, and the last two errors make their lines meaningless. (Report) Reply

    This is beautiful! I have read and written farewell pieces but this is AMAZING! ! R.B is the best! (Report) Reply

    a little too long-winded for my liking
    i am more of the genre of the late great William Blake
    but hey Robert nice try (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
