My Heart's In The Highlands

by Robert Burns


My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,

My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer -

A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;

My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.


Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North

The birth place of Valour, the country of Worth;

Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,

The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.



Farewell to the mountains high cover'd with snow;

Farewell to the straths and green valleys below;

Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods;

Farwell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.


My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,

My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer -

Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;

My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.

1 chasing:running after

2 roe:a kind of deer in Europe and western Asia

3 the North:Scotland

4 valor:bravery

5 worth:value,merit

6 rove:roam,wander

7 strath(Scotch):a flat,wide river valley

8 wild-hanging woods:

As a traveler far away from home,the poet calls to mind the unforgettable beautiful scenery

and the past happy days in the highlands.

He keenly expresses his love for his homeland,and declares that wherever he goes his heart will be for ever in it.


我的心在苏格兰高原
作者:罗伯特•彭斯
翻译:晚枫

我的心啊在高原,它不在这里
我的心啊在高原,寻鹿的踪迹
那些野鹿母鹿啊,我一路追逐
我的心在高原,无论身在何处

再见了啊高原,再见了啊北方
勇士们的家园,我骄傲的故乡;
无论何方漂泊,无论何处流离,
高原的群山啊,我永远热爱你

再见了,白雪皑皑的山峦
再见了,山下碧翠的谷川
再见了,挂满藤蔓的林丛
再见了,奔腾咆哮的山洪

我的心啊在高原,它不在这里
我的心啊在高原,寻鹿的踪迹
那些野鹿母鹿啊,我一路追逐
我的心在高原,无论身在何处

The rhyme scheme of this verse is AABB.

The greatest of Scottish poets,Robert Burns(1759-1796),was born in a peasant’s clay-built cottage.His father was a man whose morality, industry,and zeal for education made him an admirable parent.The poet had little schooling,but under paternal influence he learned how to teach himself.
At the age of fifteen,the future poet was worked beyond his strength in doing a man’s full labour.He called his life on the farms “the unceasing toil of a gallery slave”.All his life he fought a hand-to-hand fight with poverty.
He died miserably in 1796,when only thirty-seven years old.He was buried in Dumfries,mourned by all honest people of his country.
Burns’ poetry is bone and flesh of the Scottish common people.The great poet drew his inspiration from the treasury of Scotch folklore and his poems in their turn became the people’s property.
In his poems Burns glorified a natural man—a health,joyous and clever Scotch peasant.

Thank you for writing this Liu.

My parents are Scottish, and when I was growing up, all things Scottish were a big influence on me.

Your analysis are excellent.

The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.
