* THE FIRTH OF FORTH *
(Scotland)

Wending my way down to the bay
Toward the wee village of Cramond
Scent of heather along the way
Nestled on the River Almond

On a mawkish Edinburgh day
In an old grave yard near the road
Lie relics marked by aged stone grey
Telling the myth that they forebode

Roman graves of an ancient day
Lying beneath the Cramond Kirk
Stately standing the watch each day
For Burke and Hare, who there did lurk

Stroll down the road to find the Inn
Cheers in the pub, a Roman toast
Take a wee nip, of scotch or gin
Hark…then reel…Centurion ghost

Here in the Inn, a story was told
"Of Seven Seas, a pirates' boat

Treasures of gold, adventures old",
Robert Louis Stevenson wrote

Amidst the fog of “Firth of Forth”
Naps the town of Kirkcaldy

Resting on the shore, toward the north
Scottish home for lass and laddie

Crossing the bay spans a trestle
Easing the way to the Highlands

Bay alive with ocean vessel
Exporting wares of Scottish brands

In Edinburgh you feel bourgeois
Cramond's the place, the day to spend
Give it for me, my last hurrah
Er’ Scottish memories never end
