Treasure Island

Francis Duggan

Walter Scott 1771-1832

His poems and his novels today read when most writers of his time are forgot
He was one of Scotland's great writers the marvellous bard Walter Scott
His still popular Waverley Novels have surely stood the test of time
He was one who told a great story and penned many a memorable rhyme.

This doggerel will not do him justice the man was a literary great
His works are the works of a genius and with the best writers he rate
He passed on in his early sixties a financial debt he was trying to repay
Back in the early eighteen thirties his legend is living today.

He was one of Scotland's great writers and few with him one can compare
Some of his stories have been made into films the Scotts of this World are so rare
Rob Roy and The Heart of Midlothian famous novels that are read Worldwide
Penned by Edinburgh's famed man of letters of him greatness cannot be denied.

His long poem The Lay of the last Minstrel in it has many a memorable line
The poems of Scott always give pleasure they seem to age well like good wine
Along with Scotland's beloved bard Robert Burns he commands a high literary place
And Walter Scott lives on in history as a credit to his clan and race.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
