Two wonderful poems, one by our Rabbie, and the other by James W. Riley. This a special for Scotland.

 
JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY
He was born on this day October 7th 1849
and upon reading his wonderful poems for children,
I feel certain he must have been a wonderful man he has a beautiful smile.

THE TWINS 

We're the Twins from Aunt Marinn's,
Igo and Ago.
When Dad comes, the show begins -
Iram, coram, dago.

Dad, he says he named us two
Igo and Ago
For a poem he always knew
Iram, coram, dago.

Then he was a braw Scotchman -
Igo and Ago.
Now he's Scotch-Amer-i-can,
Iram, coram, dago.

"Hey !" he cries, and pats his knee,
" Igo and Ago,
My twin bairnies, ride wi' me -
Iram, coram, dago. "

"Here," he laughs, " ye've each a leg,
Igo and Ago,
Gleg as Tam o' Shanter's 'Meg'
Iram, coram, dago.

Then we mount, with shrieks of mirth,
Igo and Ago,
The two gladdest twins on earth,
Iram, coram, dago.

Wade and Silas Walker cry,
"Igo and Ago,
Annie's kissin' 'em good-bye !"
Iram, coram, dago.

Aunty waves us fond farewells -
"Igo and Ago ";
Granny pipes, " Tak care yersels !"
Iram, coram, dago.
