REPLY TO AN INVITATION

February 16, 2017

This reply in verse to an invitation was written by Robert Burns in 1786. The recipient is unknown but the wording would suggest it was sent to a close friend who knew the poet well.

 

Sir,

Yours this moment I unseal,

And faith I'm gay and hearty!

To tell the truth and shame the deil,

I am as fou as Bartie:

But Foorsday, sir, my promise leal,

Expect me o' your partie,

If on a beastie I can speel,

Or hurl in a cartie.

Yours,

Robert Burns.

Mauchlin, Monday night, 10 o'clock.
