Robert Burns 1759-1796

~~~~~ Doth if not thrill thee, Poet, Dead and dust though thy art, To feel how I press thy singing Close to my heart? ~~~~~ His work is known around the Earth This ploughman lad of lowly birth He wooed and won the lassies braw His Jean the fairest of them aw He honoured such as mice and men And friendship flowed beneath his pen Of parity and justice wrote A line that I take leave to quote “That man to man the world o’er shall brothers be...” can’t ask for more. Diverse his works, out of his time The man who gave us “Auld Lang Syne"

    thank you Margaret for the education slip, mayhap when there your hand did grip, the hand of Robbie Burns, perchance...

    thanks for telling us some of these wonderful facts about Burns. Poor guy. Another poet to die very young! I didn't know he gave us Auld Lang Syne! You chose your author well, Marg!
