Sailin’ Loch Ness

2 Comments

Evening fell as blue-wing’d larks
Swept o’er great waves black as peat
Ae warning tae nae ask tae mech
Nor question secrets uv Loch Ness
Why, even wise swans hugged th’ shore
As th’ Cap’n ordered us ow a’board
As mysteries come, an mysteries go
We wairnt’ disturbed by auld wives’ tales
Uv ae monstrous sea serpent uv th’deep
Real or imagined, we’d lost nae sleep
But sail’d far as we culd tae find
Wha’ lay beyond th’ craggy headland
Wair we spied ae bride aboot tae be wed
As she hoist’d her satin’d feet wi’ dread
As th’ wee boat shook on rowl’in waves
We laff’d tae prove nuthin was grave
But far below th’dark loch swell’d
As we held oor breath, ae gurgle fell
Echoin’ back ae kind uv warn’in
Not quite a rumble, mair lik’ a laff
As if thae great monster o’ thae loch
Had swirled his tail half asleep
Tae prove what we guess’d
Tha, he got th’ best uv us

  1. Thank you for this piece of art! I am so very much amazed by the legend of the mysterious monster. Is it real or fake? I don’t know.

    • Thank you D! I always enjoy hearing from you. As for the ‘sea serpent’…I can say this …only the deep waters of Loch Ness know for sure! 🙂
