Guid Spyacks [Good Examples] ©

John Henderson
Stirling, Scotland
2006

Smaachrie an' douce-lik,
Snooves back ma veesions.
Sich bide i' ma myn's-ee an' ma saal.
Lang oors they rist syne,
Sae ivver syne nar me,
Muckle easdom tae unfaal.

Luvin wis faither, an' luvin wis mither,
Sich guid spyacks, faithfu baith.
Thon sich graun fowk i' ma bairnheid,
Wi' unforyetable strang graith.

Winnerfu !
Mervelous !
Picturs syne weil mynded.
Hoo they're tappin oan ma saal.
I' the quaitness,
O' the even,
Gweed-gien veesions clair unfaal.
