Poems and Songs

In the North West

Look where the road, a spring uncoiling,

Leads to the landscape of delight;

Follow beyond the lonely shieling

The heronís heavy flight

White on the lochanís peat-stained water

Waxen lily petals gleam;

Safe in the reeds around its border

Brown trout lurk and dream.

Sheer from the moor the mountain rises,

Corrie and stumbling scree;

Clear from its crest the eagle gazes

Westward to the sea

Across the shore-line softly shading

Blue to green to dazzling white

On palest sand where surf is sliding -

The Landscape of delight

Douglas Fraser

1967
