Recipe For Scotch Whiskey - Poem by David Whalen

Start with cold, fringed beaches,
Laced with Smoke and fog.
In a cauldron.
Add Cliffs and caverns
With just a dash
of Monuments of mystery.
Blend in the breath
Of Ancient peat bog.
Add then a dollop
Of flavor of brine,
To Malt barley
And yeast,
blessed by a priest.
Finally meld in together
In a vast vessel of copper,
The Smell of salt air and tears
Bottle in layers of old Celtic prayers.
Then sit back and wait
For a number of years
