    My heart s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,My heart s in the Highlands a chasing the deer,A chasing the wild deer and following the roe My heart s in the Highlands, wherever I go Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,The birthplace of valour, the country of worth Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.Farewell to the mountains high cover d with snow,Farewell to the straths and green valleys below,Farewell to the forests and wild hanging woods,Farewell to the torrents and loud pouring floods My heart s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,My heart s in the Highlands a chasing the deer,A chasing the wild deer and following the roe My heart s in the Highlands, wherever I go

    What a gift Burns had for rhyme and meter He makes it look so easy and spontaneous The book has lots of social commentary with poems written as open letters to his contemporaries and epitaphs for the deceased He eulogized the living and the dead in verse He commented on current political and religious debates in verse This was in additional to the usual topics of life, death, and romance chronicled by all poets There is also much in praise of the delights of love, flesh, drink, and the working class He was a rural farmer who never forgot his roots, or, accurately his plow and barn dances, and especially what you might do when the dancing was over This edition contains the nearly complete lyrical works of Scotland s most famous poet A few recently discovered verses and some of the raunchy erotic lyrics, such as Brose and Butter are missing, but the volume is still a poetic banquet with a glossary of Scots words, and indexes by first line and title.

    This is an inexpensive edition, and like a good mixed tape, filled with a variety of well loved songs and verse It also includes a much needed Scots English dictionary in the appendix, and though not necessary for all of the work herein, a total must for most I wrote a facebook comment to a friend in Scots the other day, as it s easy to pick up on and well, beyond charming, I even memorized a few lines to be repeated at the bars, because I m sure that nearly everyone loves Burns, and who wouldn t love Scots It s all guid willie.

    Favorite poetYes Burns is my favorite poet My all time favorite poem is A Red Red Rose The best part of the poems is that they are written in old English and it brings the feelings to life In some ways, the past reminds us of a simpler time but tell feelings and emotions are the same Love Romance Lust Betrayal Enjoyment of life.
