Excerpt from Representative Poems of Robert Burns: With Carlyle's Essay on Burns
This tender, quiet, beautiful lyric is the work of a singer 5 who has mastered his technic. Some lovers of Burns will surely agree with Hazlitt, who says: Of all the pro ductions of Burns, the pathetic and serious love-songs which he has left behind him in the manner of old bal lads are perhaps those which take the deepest and most lasting hold of the mind. Such are the lines to 'mary Morison' and the song O my Love is like a Red, Red Rose.
