Happy Robbie Burns Day!
Happy Rabbie Burns Day, ye auld wee sleekit tim’rous beasties! Yes, beloved Scottish poet Robert Burns was born on this day in 1759, and 253 years later, we still toast his memory with ale and haggis and bad Scottish accents and merriment all ’round. A friend of mine is even performing Highland dance for the occasion.
If you’d like to commemorate the birthday of the Ploughman Poet a little more concretely and extravagantly, there’s no better time to pick up something special – have a gander at the copy (pictured left) of Burns’ Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, exquistely contained in a gorgeous Cosway-style binding with an inlaid portrait of Scotland’s Bard himself. If that’s too dear for you, we have plenty of other collectible Robbie Burns, as well as a vast selection of affordable, regular copies of Robbie Burns poetry for the common man. Tip a glass of ale and enjoy your day.
