'Love for Love' by Robert Burns

'Love for Love' by Robert Burns
By Sophie

Thinking of proposing this Valentines Day? Why not take some inspiration from Robert Burns in his poem Love for Love:

Ithers seek they ken na what,
Features, carriage, and a' that;
Gie me love in her I court,
Love to love makes a' the sport.

Let love sparkle in her e'e;
Let her lo'e nae man but me;
That's the tocher-gude* I prize,
There the luver's treasure lies.

*tocher-gude = marriage portion*
