about

Winter is a time of dramatic weather and reflection; the landscape changes and we prepare for new growth. Selected lyrics from a poem by Professor John Veitch (1829-1894) written on 2nd January 1886 titled 'In Yarrow'. Wishing you all a safe and cosy Winter.

lyrics

I'll see Newhall this winter day
These withered hills tae me are dear
The lint white bent, the bracken brown
Ye weel beseem the faded year

An restful all the heights around
Their greenery spent the summer gone
Now waiting in a blissful calm
With quiet faith the winter sun

What e'er the years tae come may hold
Of love or power that's lent or sold
Yer welcome here, in from the cold
Come tell yer tale that's telt of old

Yer welcome in
Yer welcome in
Yer welcome here
Warm Winter cheer

I muse and pass by lone Glenlude
The Yarrow spreads before ma sight
The grey clouds moving part and throw
Owre the hills a dappled light

No gliding stream are you this morning
Yer flood each branching channel fills
In gleaming spears all down the vale
Ye poured three yarrows from the hills

What e'er the years tae come may hold
Of love or power that's lent or sold
Yer welcome here, in from the cold
Come tell yer tale that's telt of old

Yer welcome in
Yer welcome in
Yer welcome here
Warm Winter cheer
