Poems: Scots and English

By W. D. Cocker


Item attributes


Item details

No poet in the Scots vernacular has of recent years achieved so great a popularity as Mr. Cocker. At Verse-Speaking Festivals his poems are frequently chosen as test pieces, and on many a platform, in city or rural village, the vigour of his lines has earned an ovation for the reader. Who has not heard of his poem Dandie -- that little cameo depicting the shepherd and his dog? Or who has not laughed at the humour of The Deluge, that amusing ballad which now ranks as a Scottish classic? All who take a delight in our Scots tongue will rejoice in this book.
