Loanhead of Daviot

Loanhead of Daviot136
Romantically the name resounds,
The truth within its darksome bounds
Is child burial and blighted crap.
The unfair God they worshipped set this trap.
Matagan lilly next to nettle,
A mix of blessing for which we still must settle.

Bill Roberts, Kirkoswald, July 2013

(“crap” is Doric for crop!)
