The greatest Bard of all Scotia.
Reigning immortal king O peasant familia.
Idealistic and unique commentator.
Born to magic words of any orator.
United differences empathised.
Tuned to the masses and idolised.
Eternal gratitude to our Rabbie.
Tickling our attitude for a party.
Oor Robert Burns O the Celtic.
Rhymer of yarns and purest magic.
Auld lang syne and Scots wha hae.
Beautiful member of the human ways.
Born here and forever after.
Your name is The Bard of Scottish patter.

    Very different from verse one? Was the Rabbie Scottish? I never thought about a Scottish Jew with a brogue. hmmmm have to ask my Jewish Dad. I'll send him this verse, hell smile. Light & Love

    I got involved with chatter and did not realise I did not leave a substantive comment about your work here today. This is very excellently written to say the least and I believe the flow itself would represent this culture alone, by itself though the word usage is not familiar to me, I feel this work deep within me. Thank you for sharing this lovely piece, Sincerely, (maiden) Lucinda Lu Cayton

    I love this! Interesting enough by my father that passed in 1980, I was taught our geneology. He stressed that we are among a couple other nationalities Irish and a bit of Scot. Just a few days I looked up our family crest but the site refused to give me any other crest but an English. At first I was ticked, but I am open minded. So I searched, and we were one of the first settlers of Norvich in 1066 A.D.~ Sarecens, in high regard.

    I am lover of Robert Burns, he brings nation language to universal acclaim, and showed us that dialect lacks none of the power of standard English. Love

    Robert Burns left a wonderful legacy that is a tribute to Scottish culture and you honor him with this lovely tribute!
