John, Devika, Angelika, Vaughn, and jem, thank you and happy new year.

Devika, thanks for that extra effort. The song is customarily sung at midnight on New Year's Eve.

Thanks for that thoughtful reading, jem.

Just in case there is anyone who didn't know, the wonderful words of that song were written by Robert Burns, the great Scottish poet.

Liked those..

Wish you a very happy creative year, Bill!



I started out loving poetry after I read Robert Burns in school. He and Browning still remain amongst my favourites.

That Auld lang syne is very familiar for me; our English teacher liked the Scottish a lot, and we had to sing that song. Later I visited Scotland many times, and learned something else, too. ,-)

I don't tell what happened in Granton, in Edinburg, this is not a naughty Page...

Thanks for the thought, polona.

Two of my favorites, too, gautami.

So, Tikkis, it's true what they say about Scotland.

Thanks very much, Lyn.
