Favourite Burns Song or Poem
Since the day (Burns' Night) is fast approaching again, which song or poem by Robert Burns do community members like most, or would recommend to other people? I'll start with a song and a poem. My favourite poem is Holy Willie's Prayer, probably one of the best satirical poems ever written and still relevant today. My favourite song is Song Composed In August, better known to some as Now Westlin' Winds. Search Youtube for the Dick Gaughan version, it is truly beautiful. Any other thoughts?
