Hamish Scott


Tho kirk bell shapit an shuik bi wund,
the blawort flour i seilence jowes:
tae God’s observance fails tae caa
ocht floral congregations

The ten commandiments neglecks,
the seiven sacraments forby,
taks tent nae sermons, niver prays,
nor offers ocht oblations

Yit see the blawort flour dae guid,
wi seed hae sum eternal life;
hou weel daes mankynd’s faith compare
tae sic a flour’s probation?
