POEM: Robert Burns – Ae Fond Kiss

Rabbie-Burns.jpg

‘Ae fond kiss and then we sever’ is more commonly known as “Ae fond kiss” and is Burns’ most recorded love song.

After the publication of his collected poems, the Kilmarnock volume, Burns regularly travelled and stayed at Edinburgh. While there he established a platonic relationship with Mrs Agnes Maclehose and they began a regular correspondence using the pseudonyms ‘Clarinda’ and ‘Sylvander’. Burns wrote ‘Ae fond kiss’ after their final meeting and sent it to Mclehose on 27 December 1791 before she departed Edinburgh for Jamaica to be with her estranged husband.
