We arrived at Lerwick, Shetland 
the British Isles most northern town
We took a tender from the ship
and a tour bus took us around 

We are not allowed to roam free
Covid restrictions put in place 
We are kept in social bubbles 
to keep the cruise ship a safe space 

Shetland is bigger than I thought
with over a hundred islands
A landscape of rolling, peat rich hills 
and lochs edged with pink red sands

The weather was as expected 
dismal, misty, cloudy and grey
I think we were very lucky 
the rain stayed away, today 

An archipelago in the North Sea
where the people live carefree 
Famous for ponies, sheep and wool
wildlife, birds and rugged scenery
