Legend of Lachie Mash

WERE IT NOT FOR LACHIE THE DAY WOULD GROW LONG,
FOR LACHIE LOOKED FRAIL BUT WAS HIELAND STRONG;
UPON HIS HEAD, THE DEERSLAYER CAP SAT PROUD
FOR ALL TO WITNESS A DEMEANOR SO QUIET NA LOUD;

JUST SEVENTY IN YEARS, HE HELD WELL THOSE YEARS
FOR HE WAS THE LEGACY OF A MILLION TEARS;

KNOWING HIS LAND LIKE THE BACK OF HIS HAND,
LACHIE KNEW ALL WHO PROSPERED THAT BARREN LAND;

HIS SKIN TOUGH AS LEATHER, HIS HEART SWEET AND KIND, SIGHTS OF HIELAND SHERLOCK WOULD CROSS ONE'S MIND;
FOR HEILAND CATTLE HE KNEW FROM WHENCE THEY BEGOT AND KNEW WHERE THEY HAUSED, THIS SHAGGY LOT;

WE KNOW OF THE TIME WHEN FORWARD WORKED NOT,
SO LACHIE TOOK HOLD AND BACKWARD HE'D TROT...

EIGHTEEN MILES TO GO BOTH TO AND FRO,
LACHIE COULD BE SEEN ROUND EVERY BOW;
HIS NECK IT WAS STRAINED, HIS MUSCLES WERE SORE,
BUT LACHIE WAS THERE AND WOULD YIELD NO MORE.
VILLAGERS MARVEL AT THIS WONDROUS FEAT,
AND OFT GAVE REPLY "THERE'S LACHIE" THEY'D GREET;

NE'ER LET IT BE SAID A BAD WORD BOUT NONE,
FOR JOY HE WOULD BRING TO BOUT EVERYONE,

A DAY IT WILL COME WHEN LACHIE WILL LIVE,
IN MEMORIES ALONE OF THE JOY HE WOULD GIVE.
BE SADDENED NOT BY THIS DARKNESS OF THOUGHT,
FOR LACHIE LIVES ON... JUS LIKE 'E OUGHT!

Composed by: Eniac Macgregor; in deep appreciation of our friendship!
Lachie resides in Elgol, Isle of Skye. A finer man I mistrust could na be found. Use this na without permission.
