042: The Tramp At Sandy Cassel's Seat

Rating: 5.0
I'm glad I took the time to greet
The Tramp at Sandy Cassel's seat
Others only stopped to stare
Their eyes saying, 'Why's he there! '

He spoilt the view, he'd made a mess
But they couldn't see through his distress
I'm glad I took the time to greet
The Tramp at Sandy Cassel's seat

He sang me songs and told me rhymes
From Days when he'd had happier times
He never once did ask for ought
But talked about what Life's about

Yes, I'm glad I took the time to greet
The Tramp at Sandy Cassel's seat
He made my day, he made me smile
I didn't care he'd stopped awhile

The gain was mine from the start
I'd seen what was written on his heart
A love of Life and no more strife
With Nature only, for a wife.

If those who mocked, had listened to him
They may have seen a different man
A quite, pleasant natured one,
Sincere and very full of charm
I hope no harm will ever reach

The Tramp at Sandy Cassel's seat...


Note: A tramp sleeping under a tarpaulin at Sandy Cassel's Memorial seat on the Coastal Path from Aberdour to Dalgety Bay, Fife. August 2012.
