Glasgow's Mitchell Library is Europe's largest reference library. Its imposing and comprehensively stocked Burns Room is a
treasured resource for scholars and enthusiasts alike. This landmark building and much loved institution first placed its
many miles of shelving at the public's disposal on November 5th, 1877. It must have been quite a bibliophilic fireworks display
for Guy Fawkes Night. Certainly, with many an indispensable book on the Bard now available to consult, there was plenty to
remember, remember! You will certainly find today's poem there. Amidst the fog the Bard, always tenderly solicitous towards
animals sees his pet lamb perish.
