144. On a Fly-Leaf of Burns’ Songs
 
By Frederic Lawrence Knowles
 
 
THESE are the best of him,
Pathos and jest of him;
Earth holds the rest of him.
 
Passions were strong in him,—
Pardon the wrong in him;        5
Hark to the song in him!—
 
Each little lyrical
Grave or satirical
Musical miracle!
