Excerpt from The Cotter's Saturday Night, and Other Poems

There was nothing in the circumstances of his life to make a poet; indeed there was everything to discourage the making of one. Born in an artificial age and amid the most prosaic surround ings; oppressed by a poverty so insistent thathe was forced to labor far beyond his strength; thinking out his poems as he stumbled along the furrow behind his plow, or rode through the night pursuing the duties of a petty exciseman; drawn to the tavern as a relief from overwork and worry, and there indulging himself until, at the age of thirty-seven, he died, worn out with his excesses, - this is the sad history of one of the brightest and sweetest characters that Scotland has produced.
