Today, Concept honours the Scottish bard Robert Burns – an inspiration for many. His words are echoed around the world: he gave John Steinbeck’s most famous novel its title – “Of Mice and Men”; he has made love and roses synonymous to us; we even sing his work with our friends every year, as we mumble our way through “Old Lang Syne”. It’s not an overstatement to say that Burns remains one of the most beloved poets in Britain and probably the most beloved in Scotland.
We at Concept are celebrating Burns night with a little poetry of our own. “Old Ink Rose” – one of our marketing team has produced this poem in-house both to celebrate Burns and to capture that certain je ne sais quoi unique to Concept. With love. x
