The Soldier of Lanark
A poem by Will Shepherd


There stood the Lanark man

His armor shining bright

Fearsome war axe in his hand

Forcing the English to flight

He storms the Stirling battlefield

Slashing his bloody blade about

The fiery tempest he does wield

In his muscled hands, none doubt 

Warrior after warrior do fall

Spreading his fury far and wide

Creating a unstoppable wall

He ravages the field refusing to die

As the time passes by

His legend spread like fires

While others wish him to die,

Some call the storytellers liars

And when the Falkirk battle starts

The veteran warrior fights

And when the arrows fly like darts

He falls, diminished is his might
