Regarding the use of Scots in poetry, of course some verse is 
supreme for the times (Burns, MacDiarmid). But on the whole 
and without any bias either way,  I think that it is not so sensitive 
as English for  subtle matters. I think that it tends within a poem to 
create an abruptness, a sense of the material. With all this in 
mind, poems with a subtle transcendent feel seem better in 
English, whereas poems in Scots lean towards down to earth and 
materialistic styles.   Am I right or wrong?
