Robert Burns Supper
9. Burns' Poems

 

In spite of the sizeable amount of Scotch being consumed, the dinner guests were able to maintain an amazing degree of composure as more tributes were offered, more poems read, and more toasts were made. You can read some of Burns' poems at www.rabbie-burns.com. Here's a sample from My Luve is Like a Red, Red Rose:

And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my luve,
Tho it were ten thousand mile!

Wow. I'm usually not sentimental, and maybe it's the Scottish accent, but give me a break, Rabbie. (sniff)
