Fae the Burn Tae the Sea     by: Henderson, Liam

Fae the Burn Tae the Sea

It trickles doon the mountain side,
By aa the parks and hills o heicht,
Splashin ower steens that are slimy and green,
An doon tae the pool whar the salmon loup.

Passin the gleamin white cruising boats,
Bein moved and flung by a large strang force,
As it splashes hard up on the harbour waa,
Ye 've tae watch yersel or get soaked an aa!
