Fell for a Scottish girl long ago.  Pretty as a picture,  but
Heart  as cold as an empty Edinburgh street  on a wet
January Monday morning, when the chiseled 
Craigleith sandstone blackened by smoke 
Repels  the rain from the Forth,
And the steep roofs pour 
Water into the runnels
Down the cobbled

    The mood of this, is as somber as the losing hold of something that could have been good........but has washed away...down the street. Nicely done, Syd.
