This is the Land

This is the land of Robert Burns
Of William Wallace too
Of Baird and Bell and Smith and Hume
All Scottish through and through

 This is the land of loch and glen
Of rivers and fields of green
From Galashiels to Stornoway
Stranraer to Aberdeen

 Many come from all the world
These simple words we tell them
Help us to build our paradise
And you and yours are welcome

 This is the land we hold so dear
Its past never forgotten
Creative and enlightened
This is Freedom This is Scotland

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    This is quite beautiful and stirring. It invites music and lots of voices to sing the words.
    Oh say can’t you see … a new day is dawning. 🙂
