Rabbie Burns     by: Kareen Webster

Tak a look in the past
Fit dae ye see?
Rabbie Burns an Poetry
He lived in a biggin
He worked in the cauld
He deed in his thirties
At wisna auld

He lived in a biggin
Aa o his life
He wis a fermer at Mossgiel ferm
An lived there wi his wife
He wrote poems an sangs
O beasties an everyday life
He niver complained o the strife.

It’s a peety he’s deed
Cause he niver kent his fame
Ae far an wide aa ower the warld
Aabody kens his name
Sae raise a gless an hae a cheer
Fur Rabbie Burns will aye be kent here!
