Inlets and Islands

Amidst these inlets and islands
Lies a land of a patriot nation
Where clans decree their might
Together in mixed relation

From the Lowlands to the Highlands
Family names of a forgotten past
Deliver us to their present
For these surnames are here to last

Sunrises and sunsets have so greeted
Many a morn and an eve has been seen
To be born into such a nation
Through their eyes, you see just your dream

For to be born on the land of the heather
Through Glens of bracken and fern's
Birthed into one of their clans
Your first breath you have duly earned

Amidst these inlets and islands
Lies a land of a patriot nation
Where clans decree their might
Welcome to Alba, the ultimate creation

    Ya wouldn't believe it but my heritage is Scotch. Austin? I guess it was spelled Osten, or something like that. Anywho. I enjoyed your creation. Congrats on the selection. daver

    A proudly written and poetic piece. We should all take pride in our heritage. I am a Yorkshireman and take great pride in the fact. But I have visited Scotland several times and always enjoyed it there, whether in Glasgow (a surprisingly lovely city), Edinburgh, Oban or places more remote. Regards, Robert.
