“Let’s Raise a Glass to Robert Burns”

Today’s literary homage goes to Robert Burns….the “Scottish Ploughman’s Poet”……..
Burns would become revered by his countrymen, ploughman and privileged alike……..

How many times have we all uttered the words……”the best laid plans of mice and men”
Those words originated in Burns’ poem “To a Mouse”……

“The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often awry,”

~~~~~~~~~”To a Mouse”

I wonder what this poet would say if he knew his legacy would be a song sung by inebriated revelers at the stroke of midnight, on New Year’s Eve.
He left other legacies…….nine children, the ninth of whom, born on the day of his funeral.
So, let’s lift a glass of the finest Chivas Regal, today for Robert Burns.

Happy Birthday, Robert, born on this day, in 1759.
