We Lost Nothing!


Many a dream led the day,
many heights we long to scale
hope was laid in the paws of courage,
itching deeply to reach the skies....

We lost nothing but what was hedged,
whilst hope forlorn in the heart of time,
moments were ruined in want of strength;
a void so deep we sired, a passion so great we lost

See how the clouds had fallen short of the sun,
see how the shadows beset the moon;
see how the day had fallen deep in sleep,
and dreams were lost in the midst of it

Those pains we dread will fade in trounce,
dreams will rise to the light of hope,
life will wake to a triumphant hymn;
if we damn our FEARS; we lost nothing at all!

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!
