21. Fickle Fortune: A Fragment

Written by: Robert Burns | Biography
 | Quotes (31) |
 THOUGH fickle Fortune has deceived me,
 She pormis’d fair and perform’d but ill;
Of mistress, friends, and wealth bereav’d me,
 Yet I bear a heart shall support me still.

I’ll act with prudence as far ’s I’m able,
 But if success I must never find,
Then come misfortune, I bid thee welcome,
 I’ll meet thee with an undaunted mind.
