The Bridge


The Bridge
I am the Bridge don’t you know?
And Just So as You Know
I am Scottish not British Ye Ken!
I grew from the mud and the silt of the Forth
with my Towers reaching high to the sky
My elder sisters were here long before I arrived
But now there’s the 3 of us caught the Worlds eye
My Steel cords unwound could circle this Earth
And I’m the best of my type anywhere
My Sails like the ships which travel beneath
Are a beauty which none can compare
And when I shine my lights up into the night
It is Saltires you’ll see should you look
I am proud of my people and pround of this Land
Their Invention and Skill which I took
Many people did come from all the World over
Each playing their part and together
For the Scotland you see when they built me
Welcomes All who will make us be Better.
Rod Macfarlane

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod
