“Robert Burns is Scotland’s poet but he belongs to the world….I make no apologies for beginning my story about Burns not in Ayrshire, but in America.”
Today I am using a poem by our National Bard, earlier this week we published an article on Robert Burns, so it seemed fitting to use one of the poems mentioned.
Robert Burns & the Laki Volcano of 1783
“Death was everywhere. But it seems it came not in the guise of a guy in a hood, but a volcano.”
