Celebrate Our Children


Let's celebrate our children
They are our inestimable garments
That wraps us when we are old
Let's rejoice with the young ones
They are our bundles of joy
Let's appreciate them always
Not just for a day per year
But every day and moment
We owe them a duty
No amount can purchase these wonders
Let's protect and defend them
They are our future and destiny
Let's embrace, cherish and cuddle them
Let's encourage and train them aright
Let's be their compass
And Show them the right paths to tread
Celebrate with the children
It's their time and season
Celebrate with our future leaders

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
