    Although today is the bard's birthday it still makes me angry that so many including most his own country-men don't even know of Ferguson's brilliance and how his poetry actually gave birth to Rabbies work. I love Fergusson.

The Daft-Days

Now mirk December's dowie face
Glours our the rigs wi' sour grimace,
While, thro' his minimum of space,
The bleer-ey'd sun
Wi' blinkin light and stealing pace,
His race doth run.

From naked groves nae birdie sings,
To shepherd's pipe nae hillock rings,
