Robbie Burns Night coming up...

Postby Canadian Jayne » Sun Jan 23, 2022 3:33 am

This year may be a
Home celebration
But
As long as we celebrate
The poems and songs that
Came from this man of cheerfulness
Hmmm sound a bit like Jim
I wonder if Jim has
And tangled roots
to Robbie?

The song and poem
“Ye Jacobites By Name”
It sounded kinda biblical
So
I looked it up
It was about the uprising for
Scotland’s Iindependence
Similar to the
American War of Independence
only this one was lost
To England
So abt 1747
“The Act of Proscription” was passed
Bagpipes and teaching Garlic was outlawed
Sheep became more valuable than people

You can hear the song
Online
It’s quite stirring
Many people were ousted from their homes,
Left or forced on ships to America
Often getting “typhoid fever”
Many dying
There were an estimated
70,000 people who left Scotland
“Clan” is Gaelic for children
That’s my lesson for today

Internet and Wiki

Yesterday I watched
One of my favourite
VHS movies

Brigadoon
With Gene Kelly
His real name was Eugene also
My dad looked a bit like him
Only my dad had the Scottish nose
Like Charlton Heston
Then tonight I watched
The Little Kidnappers
With Charlton Heston as
The cranky Scottish grandfather
In Canada

I found my Argyll socks
For today
So I’m
All set
Listening to

Enya

Even tho it’s more Irish music
It’s all Celtic and the music merges
in
Between Irish and Scottish sounding
It’s All good

I’m still in Robbie Burns mode
Enjoying
Mil of Kintyre
I love watching the video
Cause I may never see Scotland
Myself
But to see and hear the song by
The sea
It just stirs your heart and
See the the people
Following the
Pipers
They still do that in
Kincardine, Ontario
