Robert Burns Night

The holidays are over, and the decorations are coming down. It's easy at this time of the year to slide into that dark winter depression. That is, unless you have the light of a Burns Party to anticipate.

Our second annual Robert Burns Dinner will be held at the end of this month, and will include men in kilts, traditional neeps and tatties, a roasted leg of lamb, the piping of the haggis, a complete whisky tasting, and enough poetry and songs for all.

I can hardly wait!

Quote me a little Robert Burns. I'm sure it was something that I should have studied in school - his name is familiar.

Scott said...

Let's see... here's a nice one...

O my luve is like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonny lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel, awhile!
And I will come again, my love
Though it were ten thousand mile.
