The Flood     by: Clark, David

Source: Flood in the Highlands – Sir Edwin Landseer

It was terrifyin, really feary,
She happit her bairn,
As though someone would takk it awa.
They need tae bide there or they will droon,
Fowk hear only ae thing... a soun,
Fowk greetin
Frae ma een tears drap, tae.

Cattle droonin.
People awake,
Aa in a nesty state.
