(That old my birth certs is expired / Glasgow)

Scottish Memories


Tall majestic mountains
And the fast flowing streams
These are just memories
That are sometimes in my dreams

Memories of my childhood
Walking through the glens
Looking down upon the heather
That never seems to end

The loch upon the distance
Its water standing still
Mirroring the image of the surrounding hills
Places I remember forget I never will

My heart it lies in Scotland
Even though I’m far away
My ashes will return here
On one of those rare bright Scottish days

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!
