Burn’s Night

It’s “Burn’s Night“, January 25th, so I thought why not post a snippet of his poetry in celebration?  If you like it, there is a selection here: “Robert Burns Country“.

The Raptures Of Folly

Thou greybeard, old Wisdom! may boast of thy treasures;
Give me with young Folly to live;
I grant thee thy calm-blooded, time-settled pleasures,
But Folly has raptures to give.
