Artist's Description

For our dear friend Donna with heather in her hair and grapes for her love of fine wine which I do believe speaks for the love of poetry…

Amang the Heather

Amang the braes aboon Dunoon,
In vernal May’s delightfu’ weather,
I met at e’en a bonnie lass
Alane amang the blooming heather.

I spoke her fair, and speert her name,
To tell me true she didna swither,
But modestly she hung her head,
And blush’d as red’s the blooming heather.

The balmy air, the glowing sky,
The thymey sod, the blooming heather,
And sic an angel by my side—
I trow ‘twas Heaven a’ thegither!

The night grew late before we wist,
It took us hours to part wi’ ither:
And now she’s mine, the bonnie lass,
That staw my heart amang the heather.
—Wm. Cross.

Love Poem

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.
— William Butler Yeats
