In Praise Of Robert Burns

In a few short hours people all over the world will link hands and sing a traditional song/poem written by a humble Scots ploughman.Now that's great writing...and here's his best. It makes the hairs on my arms stir every time I hear it and I have it as a plaque on the wall.

So tonight. Link hands and remember. Honest writing, deeply felt speaks to people. And lasts.
