My Heart Beats Fast in the Highlands ©

(In anticipation of tonight's Burns Supper)

Nat Hall
Sandwick, Shetland
2004

I'll give my soul
to Burns
tonight;
whisky will flow
down
in glasses(!)
like river Coe
through wild heather -
share haggis
with lads and lasses;
a verse or two
in candle light.

My heart beats
fast in the Highlands,
I hear Robbie
and a bagpipe...
all that freedom
in blue and white,
we'll dress our
words in old tartans.

Poetry flows in us
tonight;
Scotworld will dance
from dusk
till dawn...
around fires,
laughs and tables -
a fling of life
all through
the night.
