Flood in the Highlands     by: Steele, Richard

Aabody’s taen the high grun
On the reef, wi their beasts.
Watter’s rushin jist aneth their feet,
An still risin!

Some beasts are skytin
The coos, the goats strugglin,
Jist managin tae survive-
The onely shelt hid watter up tae it’s neck-

The mither bosied her bairn
The faither thocht
The anely beasts tae survive
Wad be the dyeuks
Floatin aroon on the watter.
