Poems by Stuart Garland
Romantic Isle of Skye


THE MIST IT COMES A ROLLING
LIKE A JET IN FROM THE SEA
SMOTHERING HILL AND GLEN
ENVELOPING YOU AND ME

BUT I, I DO NOT MIND THIS BOY
IM CELTIC TILL I DIE
THIS ISLAND FULL OF CONTRASTS
MY BEAUTIFUL ISLE OF SKYE

OUR FAILTE IS SO EMBRASSING
CALLS PEOPLE FROM FAR AND WIDE
WHISKEY HUGGING FONDNESS
WELL GREET YOU WITH THE TIDE

BUT IM SURE YOU WILL NOT MIND THIS BOY
COME QUICKLY THE TIME IS NIGH
WELL SHARE OUR VIEWS AND CULTURES
ON THIS MOST SCENIC ISLE OF SKYE

WE WORK THE LAND AND SEA BY DAY
AND MAYBE THROUGH THE NIGHT
CHASE A FISH DOWN THROUGH THE GLEN
TRADING SHOUTS BY DIM TORCHLIGHT

BUT HERE WE DO NOT MIND THAT BOY
TO BE GAELIC MAKES US HIGH
WE NEED NO FANCY LIFESTYLES
WERE HAPPY HERE ON SKYE

SO RAISE YOUR GLASS AND DOWN A DRAM
FOR IGNORANCE MAKES YOU LIE
AND TOAST HISTORIC ESCAPADES
ON THE ROMANTIC ISLE OF SKYE.
