Poetry Map of Scotland: poem no. 366

Robbing Burns
Springtime in Angus
Halcyon days for youth of Britain.
Bees en pursuit of heather
Tadpoles metamorphosing in burns of
Torrent down to a trickle
In just one generation
Through dens towards Kirrie
Over flat sandstone pebbles, caressed
By river jelly lichen
Under boreal woodland
The alder in leafage
Shady horsetail, purple orchid
Four leafed herb-paris, flowering
In the domain Cortachy.
Water drying up year on year.
Is this global warming?
Alun Robert
