On A Fly-Leaf Of Burns' Songs

These are the best of him,
Pathos and jest of him;
Earth holds the rest of him.

Passions were strong in him, --
Pardon the wrong in him;
Hark to the song in him! --

Each little lyrical
Grave or satirical
Musical miracle!

Now that's poetry Fred! Taut as a bowstring. Sparse of embellishment and the last triplet is is truly exquisite. Owd Rabbie would be proud of ye.
