Eluned Lyr Req: Star o' Robbie Burns (Thomson, Booth) (33) RE: LYRICS FOR STAR OF RABBIE BURNS 28 Apr 00


WOW! They have suppers to honor Robbie Burns?! I niver knew!
The reason I find this so astonishing is that, as a child, for two years, I lived near Ayr, on the banks of the river Doone. I walked daily in gardens which still had trees planted by Robbie's father, walked past the cottage of his birth every schoolday, ate in the Tavern dedicated to him, went to church across the street from the Auld Kirk, and often saw the old bridge which was used in his time. I know all of the stories, and my cat, may he rest in peace, who only just died this past January, was named Tam O' Shantee (he nearly died of HIS curiousity, too). And while I knew he was honored as the poet laureat of Scotland, and his songs are available far and wide, I never imagined anyone held dinners to honor him....
