Jamie Wright's Well

Campsie Glen

Inscription on the Well

"Hail to your dimplin' wimplin drop

Clear, caller, caul'

That bids the drouthy traveller stop

And tak 'his fill'

Hail to your heart-reviving tipple

Enticing slee wi twinklin' ripple,

Thou crystal milk frae Nature's nipple

Wee Mountain Well!

Born of the whirlin' wintry flake

Of Arctic shower

When charging storms the welkin rake

   And scrudge the bower,

You joukit frae the furious blast

And seepin' doon the mountain past

Till here my craig you weet at last

Sine ower the stour"

JAMES M SLIMMON

ERECTED BY FRIENDS OF THE POET
