Quote of the Day, 12/27/06: Auld Lang Syne

I should hold off and use this for Poetry Friday, but it sprang to mind today, so I've an urge to post it now.

Here's a bit of Auld Lang Syne (Old Long Ago), with translation:

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.

And there is a hand my trusted friend
And give me a hand of yours
And we'll take a good drink/toast
For old long ago.

Here's a great site to read the entire song, the history of how it was written (some of it by Burns), and the translation of all the verses.
