Robert Burns Day. This is an image of the poet, Robert Burns. Last Friday was Burns Day. Traditionally, people eat Scottish food (haggis), drink Scotch, and recite Burns' poetry. He's my favorite poet, and we're Scotish, but we were sick on Burns Day, so we're doing it this week instead. I plan to print this for the table. For scrapbooking, altered art, gift tags, framing, cards.
THE SELKIRK GRACE This plaque is mounted on the wall of the Rose Garden opposite Robert Burns's House & Museum in Dumfries. Although the "Selkirk Grace" is attributed to Robert Burns, a version was known in the 17th century as the Galloway Grace or the Covenanters' Grace and was said in Lallans (the Lowland Scots dialect). The first verse is usually said at Burns Suppers.
Statue of Robert Burns in Arbroath, Angus, Scotland. Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796) (also known as Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard) was a Scottish poet and a lyricist.
Robert Burns (or Rabbie Burns) is arguably the most famous man in Scottish cultural history. He was born in the small village of Alloway near Ayr on the 25th January 1759. Burns Night has been marked by Scots for 200 years and was begun by friends of the poet as a tribute following his death in 1796. Burns Suppers can be either grand formal affairs or small gatherings.
