Poems Every Child Should Know by  Mary E. Burt


 

 

JOHN ANDERSON

"John Anderson," by Robert Burns (1759-96). This poem is included to please several teachers.

John Anderson, my jo, John,

When we were first acquent

Your locks were like the raven,

Your bonnie brow was brent;

But now your brow is bald, John,

Your locks are like the snow;

But blessings on your frosty pow,

John Anderson, my jo.


John Anderson, my jo, John,

We clamb the hill thegither,

And mony a canty day, John,

We've had wi' ane anither;

Now we maun totter down, John,

But hand in hand we'll go,

And sleep thegither at the foot,

John Anderson, my jo.


ROBERT BURNS.
