Look at Shetland from the water, what do you see?
Leave from the South, drift off the Roost -
Let rock the sea.
Close half your eyes, stand on port side -
Let your mind flee.
...What do you see, what do you see?
Do you see land - do you see her?
With the distance the South Mainland
Has given shape to a woman laid on her back
She yearns for love in her cold bath -
She looks for lust watching the skies
...Is there a lover in the clouds?
Can you picture her silhouette; her legs
And breasts in summer sky?
Let your mind rest, you're not dreaming -
Leaving Shetland from the water
Has left a print to fantasise,
Resting woman in the ocean - her sensual shapes
...No, no, no, I was sober when I saw this -
Why don't you join me for a drink,
You, blinded soul (!)
