Foo I saved the Wid     by: Smith, Matthew

Source: Wood on the Downs - Paul Nash

Ae sunny day I wis rinnin ower
This roch road.
I cam in tae a muckle wid
An I saw a brock, tod, moose,
A hoolet an some girse.
In the girse I fell ower a bawd
An I heard a chainsaw hackin doon a tree.
I ran tae the chiel haudin the saw
An cried 'Stop!'
The chiel stoppit an left in his van
I'd saved the wid!
Back I gaed ower the roch road
Hame tae my ma!
