Spring - By Bob Auld

Spring Quietly I wander thro' life's vale While soft winds warm the earth Bird song echoes o'er hill and dale Music welcome every flower's birth Serene and majestic stand the trees Sighing gently caressed by the breeze Each bud b'deck't waving bough Every grassy strewn rocky knowe Embracing the sun,...

The Seugh of the Sea - by Bob Auld

The Seugh of the Sea I have listened with glee to the songs of the sea In many of its variable moods I have walked on the shore, with its long sandy floor In the night's long solitudes I have heard the surf roar like a mighty encore Music to people like me I am many ways blessed but I also have miss...

A Glance Ahead - By Bob Auld

A Glance Ahead The winter has been so very long I yearn to hear the lark It's a dreary life without a song When days are mostly dark.

Arran - By Bob Auld

Arran Tween Knockrivoch Mounds and Sorbie Tower Where I can view the firth And the air is filled with mystic power And nature leaps with mirth By a drystane dyke where March hares play I sat in awesome wonder As a fresh breeze blew the mists away And tore the clouds asunder.
