January 25th is Rabbie  Burns Day in Scotland. Robert Burns was the national bard, a Scottish poet and lyricist celebrated by Scots throughout the world…

My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June.
O my love is like a melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

As fair thou art my bonnie lass
So deep in love am I
And I will love thee still my dear
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear
Till a’ the seas gang dry,
And I will love thee still my dear
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

~Robert Burns~
