Robert Burns (1759-1796)

Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
Had we never lov'd sae blindly,
Never met -- or never parted,
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Freedom and Whisky gang thegither!

Gie me ae spark o' Nature's fire,
That's a' the learning I desire.

ROBERT BURNS, First Epistle to John Lapraik

To make a happy fire-side clime
To weans and wife,
That's the true pathos and sublime
Of human life.

But pleasures are like poppies spread--
You seize the flow'r, its bloom is shed;
Or like the snow falls in the river--
A moment white -- then melts for ever.

The rank is but the guinea's stamp;
The man's the gowd for a' that!

The best laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft a-gley.

Liberty's a glorious feast!
Courts for cowards were erected,
Churches built to please the priest.

That sunny walls from Boreas screen.
They tempt the taste and charm the sight.

That's newly sprung in June.
O, my Luve is like the melodie,
That's sweetly played in tune.

Anticipation forward points the view.

Or were I in the wildest waste,
Sae black and bare, sae black and bare,
The desert were a paradise,
If thou wert there, if thou wert there.
