Robert Pollok

In 1826 Robert Pollok began an epic poem. Ten volumes later, and not even 28 years of age, Robert was dead.

His poem was called “The course of time”

I came across this poem through St Ann’s, Bridge of Allan, where my mother Margaret was born and where my daughter Rachel went to Nursery School.
