More about Robert Burns:
Robert Burns was born on January 25, 1759, in Alloway, Ayrshire, Scotland. Also known as Rabbie Burns, The Bard of Ayrsire, and the Ploughman Poet, he died aged just 37. In this short life, he managed to father 12 children (9 with his wife, Jean Armour; only three lived past infancy).
Burns wrote his first poem when he was 15. As a pioneer of the Romanticism movement, Burns wrote songs as well as poems, contributing over 100 songs to “The Melodies of Scotland,” most famously Auld Lang Syne. “Scots Wha Hae” is another well-known song that, like Auld Lang Syne, is Burn’s lyrics set to traditional Scottish tunes. Other well-loved poems include “A Red, Red Rose,” “A Man’s a Man for A’ That,” “To a Mouse,” and Tam o’ Shanter.”
