The Sands Of Dee

Rating: 2.9

1 "O Mary, go and call the cattle home,
2 And call the cattle home,
3 And call the cattle home
4 Across the sands of Dee";
5 The western wind was wild and dank with foam,
6 And all alone went she.

7 The western tide crept up along the sand,
8 And o'er and o'er the sand,
9 And round and round the sand,

10 As far as eye could see.

I learnt this poem over 30yrs ago and have been reciting it to my kids. It's a great feeling to be able to recite it with more confidence. A great poem!
