@  shirsan : (26 August 2014 - 03:08 PM) Also, his half or step brother. Is he his Dad's son or his step-father's son? I got to thinking about that and I had to assume that he was his Dad's son by the French-Canadian wife since he said he was 8 years younger than he was when he met him. Just wondering.]

Ode to Clarinda and Sylvander Och, his een cest upon 'er fair! What pang in his cheb 'at questions dare That fair thes moment he did nae exist Fur whit he’d gie fur a body sweit kiss! Och, she feels his gaze an' knowing The warmth ay it runs ever flowing That shivers tremblin' within 'er knows She hopes 'er coopon an' een don’t shaw! But alas sweit loove nae meant tae be Too staurn crossed bodies blin' tae see Ain fears th' loost ay love’s left tae burn Tae sit in their hearts forever tae yearn. HAPPY ROBERT BURNS DAY! Delene

Roughly, give or take a word....for the sake of rhyming. Oh, his eyes cast upon her fair! What pang in his breast that questions dare! That fore this moment he did not exist For what he’d give for one sweet kiss! Oh, she feels his gaze and knowing The warmth of it runs ever flowing That shivers trembling within her know What she hopes her face and eyes don’t show! But alas sweet love not meant to be Too star crossed bodies blind to see One fears the lust of true love’s yearning To set in their hearts forever burning. Delene

If only! That's one of mine dedicated to Rabbie and one of his loves! But thanks for the compliment! ;)

Delene

I was looking at those books of poems and I might order that one. I read a little bit of it and it looks like it has some interesting info.

I went in to a little bookstore in Edinburgh Castle when I was there and bought a little book on RB's history laced with many of his poems. It was only a pound ninety nine but it's quite informative! I think my favorite is reading the love letters between Robert and Agnes (Clarinda). Supposedly, they had thing going on but never consummated their affair.
