The Faed Family

Verse 5 of "The Cotter's Saturday Night"

Period:
19th Century
Description:

With joy unfeign'd, brothers and sisters meet,

And each for other's weelfare kindly spiers,

The social hours, swift-wing'd, unnotic'd fleet;

Each tells the uncos that he sees or hears.

The Parents partial eye their hopeful years;

Anticipation forward points the view;

The Mother wi' her needle and the sheers,

Gars auld claes look amaist as weel's new;

The Father mixes a' wi admonition due.

 

John Faed painted a number of scenes from Robert Burns' poems, many of which were reproduced as prints.
