IN HONOUR OF NETTE ONCLAUD - Both of them


Blog Posted:1/10/2013 9:36:00 AM



NETTE ONCLAUD, PRINCESS TO THE QUEEN


The Highlands, our Kingdom, our many Lochs and Glens
Our beauty woos fair maidens to be at the side of Highland men
Their futures to be part of our history, Queens to our many Clans
As we stand and salute the Saltire, by the side of their Highlander man

Such a Princess exists, in a far away land from the Scot's
To our shores we'll grace her beauty, once seen, forget me not
Onclaud, by the name Nette, shall stand by her Alba man
Upon a Ben she'll stand so proud, admiring the lands of her married Clan

She'll walk through purple heathers, thickened by natures sun
Amidst ferns and ancient brackens by burns so crisp in run
By her side he stands this man, kilted displaying his kin
Claymore at the ready to grace his enemies skin

His Queen, their Kingdom, their Castle, resting on the shores of the River Ness
Overlooking forests and greens, salmon runs in richness finesse
When the night befalls these lands, in the Kingdom of the Lochs and Glens
It's understandable as to why they be wooed, by these historic Highlander men

    No news yet - I had hoped that this might flush her out (so to speak). :-)

    Nette has not posted anything since November - I hope that this is just a short break. Yes, James really struck home with this great poem of his.

    Never been to Inverness, but it looks gorgeous. My family was from Dumfries and I have traveled around the lowlands.

    Inverness and the Highlands is such a scenic place to visit :)

    Thank for finding my poem dedicated to Nette, Suzette. Hey that rhymes, I should start writing poetry :) The image is the Castle in the center of Inverness, the city where I stay in the Highlands of Scotland. If you ever get a chance to visit the Highlands, ensure you see Inverness and surrounding area such as Loch Ness. Once again many thanks :)

    Thank you kindly Suzette. I always wanted to have a website. I thought it would have been a music orientated site as I love music. I never thought it would be a poetry site, but I'm glad it materialised to be about poetry :)

    You are welcome, James. I only got us far as visiting Edinburgh the times I had visited Scotland. Next time I am in that region I will explore further - I am still to visit the former capital, Glasgow....
