Robert Burns

Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland.

About Sin

I waive the quantum o'the sin,
The hazard of concealing:
But, och! it hardens a'within,
And petrifies the feeling!
