Edwin Morgan Sweet Poems
- 1. Strawberries
There were never strawberries
like the ones we had
that sultry afternoon
sitting on the step
- 2. James Macfarlan
'A man's a man for a' that' â?? how does he know?
Traipsing with his plough, the rural hero,
Swaggering down the lea-rigs, talking to mice,
Sweating his sickly verses to entice
- 3. At Eighty
Push the boat out, compañeros,
push the boat out, whatever the sea.
Who says we cannot guide ourselves
through the boiling reefs, black as they are,
