ON BURNS AND RAMSAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now burns and ramsay both are dead
Last Line: My meter is of diff'rent kinds.
Subject(s): Burns, Robert (1759-1796); Poetry & Poets; Ramsay, Allan (1686-1758)

Now Burns and Ramsay both are dead,
Although I cannot them succeed;
Yet here I'll try my natural skill,
And hope you will not take it ill.

You know their learning was not sma',
And mine is next to nane at a';
Theirs must be brighter far than mine,
Because I'm much on the decline.

I hope the public will excuse
What I have done here by the Muse;
As diff'rent men are of diff'rent minds,
My meter is of diff'rent kinds.
