One of his most recent offerings…
A wee written piece by Jist a loon fae Aiberdeen…….
O days tae ponder sae upon
yet in the past as e’er belong,
Far tae wander, as sae tae be
o days, o days I’ll ne’er see again
O days I stood wae others too
as kin an brother as each o you,
We sae faced the volley an cannons touch
o days, o days we will ne’er see again
O days tae fight an tae bleed
as sae the sight as nae tae heed,
The rank an file o coats sae blood red
O days, o days ne’er tae see again
O days, o days as on they came
thrust the bayonet deep, twas their shame,
Yet an though twas not our blame
O days, o days we ne’er will see again
O days, o days scattered as tae them it mattered nought
Wae blood an life, tae gi’e yet we sae fought,
As o’er the ocean or lain deep, lord the tears we’d often weep
an o days, o days as we stood but true hielan men
Whaur o days now gone afore
Did ye, did ye hear the cries cast far o’er a distant shore?
Tae feel oor pain as the land stood still, ne’er tae wander
through Glen or oor story tae tell
What o oor days, oor days we must ne’er, ne’er forget
as o days, o days for our future we, must stand an fight
for all, all o oor days, oor days.

Another cracking piece…..
Life his fair seen me o it tae bow doon
an strife it his wounded the hairt o this loon,
An life it his taught me, tae gaun far an be strong
Wi the miles I took, as I’d gaun along
Life is fit it is o that I’m is sure
wae irks o this n that, yet fit is the cure,
life an the longing to be fa I am
o wurds jist a man, jist a man
Life fits the answer ti questions it dis perplex
n lessons I learned I’ll niver forget,
Life gings on, n I cannae turn back in time
ti pit right fit iver bit och life it is mine
Life? Fits the secret ti jist gettin by
is wi keep gaun on, oh aye, oh aye,
Life live it ti the fullest, aye on oor airse tae fa doon,
yet I got up an I’ll keep on going is aifter a said n done
I’m Jist an Aiberdeen Loon
