AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy birthday, Burns.

Nasmyth, Robert Burns, 1789


Robert Burns was born on this day 1759.

One night as I did wander,
When corn begins to shoot,
I sat me down to ponder
Upon an auld tree root;
Auld Ayr ran by before me,
And bicker'd to the seas;
A cushat crooded o'er me,
That echoed through the braes.

Robert Burns
