'Ae fond kiss' by Robert Burns provided inspiration for Williamson's poem 'Auld triangles.'
'[In the Library] I was given a folder to look at and inside it there was a letter from Robert Burns to Agnes Maclehose (Clarinda). The words to 'Ae fond kiss' were included in his letter. I hadn’t expected to find this. The experience caught me by surprise, and seeing, holding, and reading the original handwritten words moved me to tears.'
