    In tribute to the late, great Scottish man, i will recite a few of my favourite poems of his for ya!

    Here you are:

    O, My Luve is Like a Red Red Rose.

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

    As fair art thou, my bonie 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!
    And I will luve thee still, my dear,
    While the sands o life shall run.

    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!


    Auld Lang Syne.

    For auld lang syne, my dear,
    For auld lang syne,
    We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
    For auld lang syne!

    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And auld lang syne?

    And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
    And surely I'll be mine,
    And we'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
    For auld lang syne!

    We twa hae run about the braes,
    And pou'd the gowans fine,
    But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
    Sin auld lang syne.

    We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
    Frae morning sun till dine,
    But seas between us braid hae roar'd
    Sin auld lang syne.

    And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
    And gie's a hand o thine,
    And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
    For auld lang syne.

    And of course.......

    To A Mouse.

    Wee sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
    O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
    Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
    Wi bickering brattle!
    I wad be laith to rin an chase thee,
    Wi murdering pattle!

    I'm truly sorry man's dominion
    Has broken Nature's social union,
    An justifies that ill opinion,
    Which makes thee startle
    At me, thy poor, earth-born companion.
    An fellow mortal!

    I doubt na, whyles, but thou may thieve:
    What then? poor beastie, thou maun live!
    A daimen icker in a thrave
    'S a sma request;
    I'll get a blessin wi the lave,
    An never miss't!

    Thy wee-bit housie, too, in ruin!
    Its silly wa's the win's are strewin!
    An naething, now, to big a new ane,
    O foggage green!
    An bleak December's win's ensuin.
    Baith snell an keen!

    Thou saw the fields laid bare an waste,
    An weary winter comin fast.
    An cozie here, beneath the blast,
    Thou thought to dwell,
    Till crash! the cruel coulter past
    Out thro thy cell.

    That wee bit heap o leaves an stibble,
    Has cost thee monie a weary nibble!
    Now thou's turn'd out, for a' thy trouble.
    But house or hald,
    To thole the winter's sleety dribble,
    An cranreuch cauld!

    But Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
    In proving foresight may be vain:
    The best-laid schemes o mice an men
    Gang aft agley,
    An lea'e us nought but grief an pain,
    For promis'd joy!

    Still thou art blest, compar'd wi me!
    The present only toucheth thee:
    But och! I backward cast my e'e,
    On prospects drear!
    An forward, tho I canna see,
    I guess an fear!

    (coincidentally, it's also my cousin's 18th birthday today)
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Okay here it go's,

    A song but still a nice poem



    Roy Orbison - Crying


    I was all right for a while,
    I could smile for a while
    But I saw you last night,
    you held my hand so tight
    As you stopped to say "Hello"
    Ah you wished me well, you couldn't tell

    That I'd been crying over you,
    crying over you
    Then you said "so long"
    left me standing all alone
    Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
    It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand
    Can start me crying

    I thought that I was over you but it's true, oo so true
    I love you even more than I did before
    but darling what can I do
    For you don't love me and I'll always be

    Crying over you, crying over you
    Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on
    I'll be crying

    I thought that I was over you but it's true, oo so true
    I love you even more than I did before but darling what can I do
    For you don't love me and I'll always be

    Crying over you, crying over you
    Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on
    I'll be crying

    crying, crying, crying
    Yeah crying, crying, crying over you
