World Poetry Day Doon Chooky Brae

I’ve just found out that it’s World Poetry Day and I could let the 24 hours pass without using it as the motivation to put pen to paper and scribble down a few words of rhyme in my native Lallans.  It; a bit rushed but I hope that you like it.



Chooky Brae

It’s been a long time noo

Syne first I saw your e’en so blue

Your hair as gouden as the daffodils

That danced among the Ayrshire hills


Mauny a day hae past syne then

But you still fill this auld hairt o’ mine

With love as fresh as it was that day

When first we met doon Chooky Brae.
