Hi, everybody

Do you happen to know what Bony Scotland means? Does the expression like Merrie England?

Thank you in advance.

I think you mean, Bonny Scotland, meaning it is beautiful.

Yes,
There was a misprint in the text.
"SCOTLAND, BONY SCOTLAND, HAS ALWAYS REEMERGED TO SHOWER HER BEAUTY ON ANY AND ALL WHO HAVE EYES TO SEE. THATíS WHY IT IS SAID HERE THAT IF YOU TRULY UNDERSTAND SCOTLAND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND LIFE ITSELF, FOR SCOTLAND IS NO LESS COMPLICATED AND NO LESS RICH."

Well said!
Kitosdad, I know you love poetry. What do you think?

Anyway, thank you very much for your help.
