Treasure Island

Heather Burns


Fields Of Heather


If you ever go to Scotland
on a summer day,
you'll fall in love with Heather
Heather's blooming along the
bay.

Raising their tiny heads to
address the day
you won't believe their beauty
They will take your breath away.

This is a magical time, Heather's
growing wild and free
looking at a field of flowers
Captivated, by their beauty.

Delicate tiny bows, catching in
the wind
they color the landscape lovely
blossoms blend.

Heather's hues beg our attention
from Pinks to fire Reds
God smiled on the appearance
Of her beautiful flower beds.

Fragrance of Honeysuckle
the sweetness of the Rose
fill the air with promise
as Heather puts on her pose.

Petals softly speak of luck
and good cheer
she'll return again in the
coming year.

Heather, is my namesake
I am proud to say
long ago and far away
my father fell in love with

HEATHER'S
On another summer day.
