Young Burns at the Grave of his Father.
Young Burns at the Grave of his Father. If my Son should happen to be a man of feeling, sentiment and taste, I shall thus add largely to his enjoyments. Let me flatter myself that this sweet little fellow, who is just now running about my desk, will be a man of a melting, ardent, glowing heart, and an immagination delighted with the painter, and rapt with the poet. Let my figure him wandering out in a sweet evening to inhale the balmy gales and enjoy the growing luxuriance of the spring, himself the while in the blooming youth of Life. He looks abroad on all nature,and through nature up to nature's God! Burns Letters.
