A Highlander Looks Back
Tribute to Inveran


A tribute to Inveran from a young local Bard—
D. J. HENDERSON, CULRAIN

O Inveran beloved by all
Always welcome in your Hall
Widely deplored was your fall
Devoured by fire and water.

O Inveran in days gone by
A joy and pleasure to the eye
Your hearth now open to the sky
Beside the sparkling water.

O Inveran you’ve seen the day
A piper march in glad array
And heard the notes float away
Across the sparkling water.

O Inveran forlorn you are
Though your fame has spread afar
Fire did your beauty mar
Beside the sparkling water.

O Inveran home to many a gent
And many an angler on pleasure bent
Many a happy day was spent
Upon the sparkling water.

O Inveran we hope and pray
To see the builders underway
You’ll live to see another day
Beside the sparkling water.
