One of the many battles between the English and Scottish people.

Twas on the 11th of September

The battle of Stirling Bridge began

William Wallace and Andrew Moray

Were in charge of all the men


Twas to their advantage that

The bridge was nae to wide

For only two horsemen could cross

As they rode over side by side


The Scots held back their charge

Until half the English had crossed over

The river Forth;  then they attacked in force

Killing the English Calvary as

Quickly as they could cross


Andrew Moray was wounded badly

As valiantly he fought that day

“Slain at Stirling, fighting against

The English king”, they say


When Wallace returned from

The battle that was won

He was knighted by Robert the Bruce

And made the “Guardian of Scotland

The history of people, a place and a battle that I would never know of but for your very well conceived and well placed words. Thank you, Kathy.
Your friend, Mark

Love the style of storytelling you used here, a history lesson but with vivid exciting images painted to expose the excitement of it all.

Reviewed by George Carroll 8/8/2010
Those hand to hand combats showed how brave these men were and for the cause they fought for.
