Plague Rose


Black Bear, Black Bear


Black bear, black bear
Have you any blood
My friend, my friend
What is this, dark red that you flood?
Black bear, black bear
Why is it that you bleed?
Demons, demons you say
They shot you,
And took you away?
And took you to die
And took your pride
And fed you scrap
In a prison filled with crap?
O black bear, black bear
Have you any blood
If not then mine will shed
On your behalf
For we are friends
Not mice and cats

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!
