Garfield Park [Robert Burns - by W. Grant Stevenson]

Robert Burns
by W. Grant Stevenson
Dedicated: 1906.
The sculpture was cast in Edinburgh and is a gift of the Robert Burns Memorial Association..
Location: Garfield Park,
Washington Blvd. between Cantral Park and Hamlin boulevards..

A Man's A Man For A' That..
[Is There for Honest Poverty", a 1795 Scot song by Robert Burns]

The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft a-gley..

Pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flower, its blossom is shed..

In fair virtue's heavenly road,
The cottage leaves the palace far behind..
