It tested you that gut wrenching run
Up from the village keeping tight by the pine tree line
Burst a lung and cerebellum over rock, mound and mud
West Lomond’s skirts demanded blood, sweat, dying legs.
Knee strip support and mair* rests than Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’
Means I can still make it-
See Perthshire and the guts of Scotland beyond
Savour that kestrel level view forever.
Mair-Scots for more.
