Robert Burns (1759 to 1796) wrote poetry and lyrics in the Scots language as well as in Scots dialect and English, and is now known worldwide as Scotland's national poet. Probably his most famous work is "Auld Lang Syne" which is sung at the beginning of each New Year all around the world! Burns died at only 37 years old but his poems are still enjoyed today. Every year he is remembered on Burns Night, which you can read more about and join in with here:
Burns Night for Kids
“My love is like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June:
My love is like the melody
That's sweetly played in tune.
How fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till all the seas gang dry.
Till all the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt with the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands of 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.”
Robert Burns, writer, poet and lyricist, once said "Dare to be honest and fear no labour". Wise words from this famous Scot!
