Quel Saige


As I kneel


As I kneel,
A ghost of a smile
Passes over my lips.
Ironies too cruel to admit.
Poignancy too real.

As I fall,
Dying all the while
It stays, a reminder
That even ghastlier times were
Happier withal.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
