Happy Birthday Dad


To wish you Happy Birthday
May seem inappropriate now
But there’s always time to celebrate
And look beyond the brow
For mums time hasn’t come yet
She needs to see your smile
Each day is precious to you both
So keep putting on the style

So dear dad its “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”
Enjoy it while it lasts
And count each day a blessing
And share with mum times past
All those holidays together
Travelling up and down the land
All steam rallies’ both attended
Mum, you and engine looked so very grand

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!
