Silent     by: Foote, Emily

Source: Visibility Moderate- Edward Wadsworth

I look oot my windae
An see the san
As silent's a moose
In the silent lan.

On the silent beach
The sun's yella as gold
Wis the chair left
By a man brave an bold?

Fit wir these flags?
An fit wir these steens?
That held up the sticks
That are shaped like beens.

Wis that a skirl?
Wis that a voice?
I wadna gae there
If I had a choice!
