The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
(The best laid schemes of Mice and Men
oft go awry,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!)
Robert Burns, To a Mouse (Poem, November, 1785)
Scottish national poet (1759 - 1796)
We Goofed, Pure and Simple, and We are Sorry
The Friday June 7 “Star of Robbie Burns” ad above although submitted in good time as part of a carefully planned campaign was inexplicably omitted from the May issue of The WholeNote.
Like Burn’s proverbial “Red red rose, newly sprung in June” “Star of Robbie Burns” promises to be a lovely leap into the summer. Stay tuned for more details about the event, including an opportunity to win tickets, by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, or registering on our website to receive our regular “e-letter.”
