The years lass hiv passed us by,
Tho' never wae a wushful sigh.
Each an' every year I cherish so,
wae an ever increasing lovefilled glow.

You arrr' withoot doubt a gentle lass,
giving tae all as the years gang pass,
Generous tae the nth degree,
as aw aboot you can surely see.

Twenty plus years av privileged such,
aye, such selflessness at yer every touch.
Hard tae explain in sae few poetic lines,
tae explain, I guess, at oany time.

Stull, I'll try wae ma clumsy heart,
Which jumps a beat whin we are apart.
Yea ken,whin yea see a butterfly alight,
Oan a fluer wae aw its colours bright.

That in aw 'ways you arrr' akin,
Aye, whin ah see that ma face is aw a'grin.
Try an' gie you sumthin' fur yersel' tae use,
S'like clim'n Everest withoot yer shoes.

Yea wurrie lass aboot aw folks aroon,
even whin you yersel' arrr' feelin' doon.
You've no bin keepin' weel these last twa years,
an' ma ain heart got fuwl o' fears.

Wait! A wee wee light is noo cummin' oan,
an' sum flesh noo startin' tae gei oan her bones.
Aye, aye, an' yer startin' tae read an aufie lote mair,
An' up frae 50 kilo's tae 60 noo, an' takin' care.

Yer Bonny face noo laughs at ma stupid jokes,
even whin it's at you they poke.
Ma bonny deary lass my hert is fit tae burst,
ah wis before thinkin', the hopeless wurst?

Up up an' away oan yer brammer smile,
aye, up an away fur many a lang lang while.
My hert wull simmer an' pray yer soul tae keep each night.
yea fuwl ma dreams lass wae the richest, glowin' light'

Oh ma lass ma Golden lass a see yea there like a bonny fluer,
a'll think o' yea ma Bonny lass ivery day, an' ivery single 'oor.
Yer shiney hair glowin' sae silkin' bricht,
ma hert Lass, yea gei a gigantic, heartfelt lift.

Noo sum twenty sum years hiv flashed by Lass,
an' yer stull that Bonny lass, an' a work o' sculptured class.
It took oanly wan second Lass to ken ma luv for you,
Since that day acroase that room , an' furiver Lass, ma luv wull stull accrue.

Thank heaven.
The Auld Yin.

I use the Scottish vernacular in 90% of my poems.

The musical sounds and twists of the Scottish words used famously by 'Robert Burns', gives colour and with a little imagination and patience from the reader, makes for a experience in poetry which differs from the usual.
They say the English language is hard to master. Here all you need as I have mentioned is patience of mind and no preconceived ideas as to what is normal.

I have been told recently my humour is of the bathroom type and very much disliked. However, I won't let the misery of a few others get me down. I do say that humour to me is everyday life and I will never apologize for trying to make people laugh. It costs me nothing so let I be my gift to all who are a wee bit down :)

I was irrevocably betrothed to laughter, the sound of which has always seemed to me to be the most civilized music in the world.
Peter Ustinov (1921 - 2004)

I know that some still cannot get used to the idea of this vernacular. I do apologize, however if I do not use this dialect there would be no point in me writing at all. It is different I know but there is enough beautiful 'English' poems on FanStory that it should not matter. So, as it gives me great deal of pleasure I hope you do not mind me carrying on with this style. Thank you:) :) :): :)
