The Weary Waste O Snaa     by: MacDonald, Alix

Source: The Weary Waste of Snow - Joseph Farquharson

Ae deid yowe in the sna
The sky filled wi an oorie glow
Bonnie glaciers shinin in the sna
The craa is a deidly fae

A vast, vast lan
Nae sign o life
Muckle dauds o rock happit wi ice
A shimmerin reflection in the watter
Craas glidin inno the distance
