O saw ye bonnie Lesley

As she gaed o'er the Border?

She's gane, like Alexander,

To spread her conquests farther.

To see her is to love her,

And love but her for ever;

For Nature made her what she is,

And ne'er made sic anither!

Thou art a queen, fair Lesley,

Thy subjects we, before thee;

Thou art divine, fair Lesley,

The hearts o' men adore thee.

The Deil he could'na scaith thee,

Or aught that wad belang thee;

He'd look into thy bonnie face,

And say "I canna wrang thee!"

The Powers aboon will tent thee;

Misfortune sha'na steer thee;

Thou'rt like themsel' sae lovely

That ill they'll ne'er let near thee.

Return again, fair Lesley,

Return to Caledonie!

That we may brag we hae a lass

There's nane again sae bonnie!

.: :.

Robert Burns was a huge supporter of the French Revolution. "Caledonie" is a collection of French islands that were probably a strategic strong hold of during this time frame. Bonnie Lesley might represent the aspirations of the FR which is why Burns says no one can hurt them since you can't stop an idea (especially a good one). Other than that though I am struggling to find any direct history or analysis related to this poem.
