Barcloy

Tell me burn! When ye’re journeyin' doon frae Barcloy's distant hill.
Whaur the guddlin' teal an’ fleet-winged snipe an’ whaup their sweet notes trill,
Dae croakin’ corbies hunt the rocks ‘mang hills baith bleak an dour
An brackened knows an’ win’-swept muirs whaur grouse An' pairtricks cower —

 

Norman C MacMillan (Tell Me Burn)
