Karate is a Lifelong Pursuit

 

Be guid the day an mair lik gowd the morn

Never a kata perfect, a block as fine

Nothing is etched perfection.

 

Some decades o training

later what is basic

You spy as a helix o wonders.

 

Aches bought in Dunfermline or Inverness

returning hame

Pencil to slate and gravity to kicks.

 

Mind, noo though

Mak karate servant nae master;

Life an hert come first

Or all can be force withoot finesse.

 

Glossary

Guid-good, mair-more, lik-like, gowd-gold, hame-home, withoot-without
