Happy Birthday Burns

A snippet from one of Burns' most well known poems 'Tam O'Shanter':

But pleasures are like poppies spread, 
You seize the flow'r, its bloom is shed; 
Or like the snow falls in the river, 
A moment white-then melts for ever; 
Or like the Borealis race, 
That flit ere you can point their place; 
Or like the Rainbow's lovely form 

Evanishing amid the storm. -
