Crofting days

Lime cement
Dry stone walls
Grass of green
Memory falls

Crofting life
Grown by you
Replenish them
Left, but a few

Food for all
A fire lights up
Merriment talk
A day mistook

Of Crofting days
Spent by you
To bring new life
Back in view.

**Highland Clearances, the forced eviction of inhabitants of the Highlands and western islands of Scotland, beginning in the mid-to-late 18th century and continuing intermittently into the mid-19th century. The removals cleared the land of people primarily to allow for the introduction of sheep pastoralism.
