• Scottish Poetry

    Scottish poetry has a long history of names involved in the love poems and ballads and songs. Perhaps the best known Scottish Poem is Ae fond kiss by Robert Burns. This poem was written by Burns after the publication of his most famous collection of Poems, known as the Kilmarnock edition. In was written on hearing that his friend was leaving to be with her estranged husband in Jamaica. Written as a platonic love poem, it is clear the affection that he felt for her.

    Most of the poem is written in old Scots but English speakers should understand most. A couple of helpful hints though:

    ae = only or sole.

    ilka = every

    sae = so
