|Hmmm... I never saw a poem of Rabbie Burns here and I thought that was something to do...
Scots, Wha Hae
Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victorie.
Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lour;
See approach proud Edward's power --
Chains and slaverie!
Wha will be a traitor-knave?
Wha can fill a coward's grave?
Wha sae base as be a slave?
Let him turn and flee!
Wha for Scotland's King and law
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Freeman stand, or freeman fa',
Let him follow me!
By oppression's woes and pains!
By your sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!
Lay the proud usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty's in every blow!
Let us do, or die!
Robert Burns (1757 - 1827)
perhaps some of you know the sung version by The Corries.

Aon, I really enjoy reading poems and songs by Robert Burns. He is one of my favorite poets. One of my fav's---
A Red, Red Rose
O my Luve's like a red red rose,
Thats newly sprung In June;
Oh my Luve's like the melody,
Thats sweetly played in tune.
As fair as thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve the still, my dear,
Till a' the sea gang dry.
Till a' the sea gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
And I will luve the still my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.
And fare-thee-weel, my only Luve!
And fare-thee-weel, awhile!
And I will come again my Luve,
Tho' twere ten thousand miles!
