“…And nought but peat reek i’ my head, How can I write what ye can read?”- Burns, ‘Epistle to Hugh Parker’

“…Wi’ a’ this care and a’ this grief,
And sma’, sma’ prospect of relief,
And nought but peat reek i’ my head,
How can I write what ye can read?
Tarbolton, twenty-fourth o’ June,
Ye’ll find me in a better tune;
But till we meet and weet our whistle,
Tak this excuse for nae epistle.”
