To Robert Burns

Poetry brings the fire of heaven onto earth

Like Robert Burns on one of his journeys north,

Creative inspiration that brings flames to the heart

And sets the cells ofthe brain onto wild reels of thought,

Travelling along streams of sympathy and love,

 Entering sweet dreams of melancholy tune.
