SEE THAT WEE LADDIE
by Gregor Steele

See the wee laddie, nae use at aw,
Last tae be picked fur the team at fitba,
Aye the coo’s tail when the schuil has a race,
Airms and legs aw ower the place,
See the wee laddie oot on the moor,
Hikin and bikin fur oor efter oor,
Huntin fur treisure by the tummilt doon hoose,
Wi an ee oot fur spaceships as he drinks on his juice,
Makin up stories he micht ne’er tell,
Tae onywan else except fur himsel,
See the wee laddie, a smile on his face,
Happy’s the laddie wha’s fund his ain place.
