: Wow, thanks Bruce. And I presume the John Steinbeck novel, "Of Mice and Men"
: derives its name from the same poem?

That is correct. I just read the novel on tape (unabridged, of course), and came looking for the poem to explain Steinbeck's use of the title. Unfortunately, reading Burns's poem didn't help explain it that much. But I guess I get the gist.

I didn't like the book too much, I must say.

Tell me about the rabbits, George.
