Dost

Kevser havuzuna dalanlar,Ölmezden öndün ölenler
Nefsini düşman bilenler,Konar tuba dallarına

Alem düşman olur ise,Beni dost'tan ırımaya
Dost kanda ise ben anda,Düşmanlık arımaya

Dost ehli bizim ile hem,Dost burdadır bize ne gam
Yüz bin cehd ederse düşman,Dost mahfili duramaya

Düşman bana nide bile,İşim gücün dost'tan yana
Dost makamı can içinde,düşman eli eremeye

Kime kim dost kapı aça,Düşmanı elinden kaça
Yunus ağzı güher saça,Değme arif değemeye.

This is a great poem and It really inspires me to go to the highlands and write a poem myself
A beautiful, emotional poem, . I just want to be there.
One of Burns simpler poems. It is slightly hypothetical because being a Lowland Scot Burns would very rarely visit the Highlands. His heart might be there but his body seldom was!
A man after my own heart. I love the highlands also, and I enjoy most of Robbie's poems. This one is no exception.
The love of places is a great source of inspiration for poetry
