Poem by David Macbeth Moir


Edinburgh


     (From Marys Mount)

TRACED like a map the landscape lies
In cultured beauty stretching wide;
There Pentlands green acclivities;
There ocean, with its azure tide;
There Arthurs Seat; and gleaming through
Thy southern wing, Dunedin blue!
While in the orient, Lammers daughters,
A distant giant range, are seen,
North Berwick Law, with cone of green,
And Bass amid the waters.
