In Memory of The Author's Father,
Robert Hogg (1930-1987) ©

Patrick Scott Hogg
Cumbernauld, Scotland
1997

When Winter's westlin' winds dae wail,
An' wild waves crash in blustry gale
Against the cragged rock:
There, at the Mull, amidst the foam,
Yer Spirit Dad, at rest - at home
Does gleefu', onward walk.
Yer brow unbent an' manly stride -
"The noblest work o' God".
Noo Nature's strength an' honest pride
Lay still, beneath the sod.
Ten years lang, ye hae gang;
Frae us, did sad depart:
Ay we, remember ye,
Immortal in oor heart.
