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!

    Wonderful read, would make a wonderful song to sing at a pub, it has all the best elements of the romantic, passionate, spirited, adventurous and mad cap gallantry. A lovely poem of the day (Report) Reply

    You can feel the intensity of the group. Righting the wrongs of Kings & Lords. Or vise versa maybe they were criminals. Just need Robin Hood to make it right. (Report) Reply

    This is surely a Chivalrous Age poetic song by Sir Walter Scott! His novel, Ivan Hoe nobody can forget! (Report) Reply

    The Macgregor clan was outlawed.Using the name was illegal and anyone caught using the name or helping a Macgregor were killed on the spot..'MacGregor, despite them, shall flourish for ever! ....wonderful! (Report) Reply

    I presume this poem is about the Scottish clearances. A fair amount of it needs explanation. (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
