    Well, Robbie Burns liked to drink a bit, that is true, but I shouldn't encourage you to make sweeping generalisations.

    Of course not, sir. Hmmm... I just had a thought... Some artists drink or smoke and stuff in order to produce some of their greatest works...

    Chinarose: Yes, 'A red red rose' is good. Have you heard it sung?


    LostPrincess13: yes, looks like a good topic for a thread. I'll make one.

    I dont think I have heard this song before. Any information about this song ?

    P.S: I remeber one person read this song with one theme song "brave heart " behind it, and I believe the poem and this song match perfectly with each other

    It reminds me anther poem "The last rose of summer" of Thomas Moore. And it has also been adapted into one song.

    Burns has been on the site since 2006, but his name appears near the bottom of the (alphabetical) Author Forums Index for some strange reason

    He felt a bit drunk

    Duly admonished. I personally don't drink whisky, but I'm only as Scottish as the earth I grew out of - I was uprooted a long time ago and planted where I am now.

    You awright now, Jimmy?
