"Ae Fond Kiss" is a poem by Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet, that was written in 1791 and published in 1792. The poem, which describes two lovers parting, was sent by Burns to a woman he loved just before she left Scotland, never to see Burns again. The poem has the highly regular structure, meter, and rhyme scheme of a song lyric, and Burns intended it to be set to the tune of a Scottish folk song.
