Loch Ness

Beautiful Loch Ness,
The truth to express,
Your landscapes are lovely and gay,
Along each side of your waters, to Fort Augustus all the way,
Your scenery is romantic…
With rocks and hills gigantic…
Enough to make one frantic,
As they view thy beautiful heathery hills,
And their clear crystal rills,
And the beautiful woodlands so green,
On a fine summer day…
From Inverness all the way…
Where the deer and the doe together doth play;
And the beautiful Falls of Foyers with its crystal spray,
As clear as the day,
Enchanting and gay,
To the traveller as he gazes thereon,
That he feels amazed with delight,
To see the water falling from such a height,
That his heed feels giddy with the scene,
As he views the Falls of Foyers and the woodlands so green,
That he exclaims in an ecstasy of delight –
Oh, beautiful Loch Ness!
I must sincerely confess,
That you are the most beautiful to behold,
With your lovely landscapes and water so cold.
And as he turns from the scene, he says with a sigh –
Oh, beautiful Loch Ness! I must bid you good-bye.

    Great poetry! Great resource – thank you for the site. FYI there’s a typo in ‘Loch Ness’ at ‘Inverneaa’

    Although I don’t like to make fun of our hero here I sometimes let my mind wander imagining different Scottish voices reciting some these poems. What pops into my head with this poem is the voice of John Grieve the comedy actor who was Dan Macphail the Engineer on the Vital Spark, it does make me smile but in a benevolent way.
