Fickle Fortune

Though fickle fortune has deceived me,
She promis’d fair and performed 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.

–Robert Burns
