A year with Robert Burns
Proving that the bard’s works are not just for 25 January, poet, journalist & Burns enthusiast, Donny O’Rourke, has selected a poem or song from Burns’s extensive collection for each day of the year. Donny’s choices reflect the seasons, key events in the poet’s life & work, anniversaries, holidays and connections between past & present.
There is something for everyone in the work of Robert Burns, whether you’re a devotee, or new to his writings, and what better way to acquaint yourself with our national bard than through daily contact with his poetry?
As Donny O’Rourke says, “Verse should be as vital as vitamins and a daily dose of Burns would do everyone good”.
However, even 365 visits a year would still leave almost half of Burns's poems remaining, so do spend some time browsing this website, where you can listen to recordings of all his works.
