“The Peistie Glen”


The singer wanders by Peistie Glen and "imbibes meditation" urging him to "write measured words eulogizing" the place. He recalls the history of the place. Now the ship calls him away; he bids farewell to his home


Yes, the first verse is as bad as the quoted excerpts imply. The rest is a little better, but only a little. - RBW
