A Highlander Looks Back
The End -
An Anglerís Prayer

IT is now a far cry since I heard the bagpipes play in that cosy little cottage within the precincts of Cluny Castle, and in an atmosphere of retrospective mood I watch the leaves on an autumn morning falling from the trees all around. I like to look upon this falling of autumnal leaves as symbolic of man, ďa glorious ending to a yet more glorious beginningĒ. Time and mortality cannot affect the eternal value of a life lived in harmony with Beauty and Love.

An Anglerís Prayer

God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day,
And when it comes to my last cast I then must humbly pray
When, in the Lordís safe landing net, Iím peacefully asleep,
That in His mercy I be judged as good enough to keep.
