...a collaboration of sketch artistry and words, with a bit o' Scottish slant.
O, my heart ‘tis at the blue blue sea,
from whence his soul departed long ago.
With him I lost my deepest luve,
the only luve that I would know.
How noble was my brave brave lad,
his feats were known wide and far.
Now I can only stand at the sea,
and seek the night’s first shinning star.
For in that star comes my handsome lad,
who once stood by my side.
From his star I glean memories,
left only to me will they bide.
Married would we have been, my lad and me,
had the ship come safely to shore.
Yet, on that eve the storm did rage
and took my lad from me evermore.
That raging sea repeats its wrath,
the waves wash on reefs as a scream.
In its wake he seems to reach for me,
but, alas, ‘tis only my needful dream.
Only thee will I luve my lad,
Only thee, brave lad, will I luve
‘til skies are ever dark, my luve
only thee will I ever luve.

Outstanding composition... "Blue Blue Sea" sings to love and mysteries of the sea.
An impressive art piece matched the "Blue Blue Sea". They enriched the eyes and the the heart.

|I loved your Scottish poem. I lived in Scotland for a time with my wife, whom I met there. One of her cousins is a man named Angus Martin. He is a writer and a poet too.|

|This is amazing, you two. It has an old-world flavor to it that is both dreamy and romantic, a treat for the eyes and the heart. Well done and something I would expect from the talent you both have brought to AD.

|A Highland Mary feel to this heart play:
“Will ye go to the Indies. my Mary.
And leave auld Scotia’s shore?
Will ye go to the Indies, my Mary.
Across th’ Atlantic’s roar?
But the woman here is contemplating.
Written in first person, you have given a moving voice to the windswept, wistful image.
She could well be another Higland Mary standing longingly on the shore of the Argylshire coast.
