Scotland, beautiful land, land of the sky, clouds
hugging your mountains, mist in the glens.
Deep black lochs full of mystery and monsters,
age-old secrets for very few to find.
Everyone can see the beauty of this land,
next to England but a million miles away.
Once we were enemies but now friends,
a country with so many moods and colours,
the sky, timeless in her gaze and her poise.
Snow covered mountains, ever so high.
Sheltered coastline, hidden bays full of promise
and the essence of mystery, maybe a mermaid,
I was lucky to meet Lori in 2003, our brief time together
showed me another world.
Deep mystical Scotland, England’s neighbour,
a world in itself.
