Bards of the Bogs

05th May 2017
Whilst in Shetland and using public facilities in Lerwick I discovered the entertaining phenomenon called Bards of the Bog. Having looked them up online I discovered the talented poets who have aspired to introduce us to their lyrical insights into everyones' everyday.

I was particularly taken by Alison Brackenburys' "On the Aerial" bard about Starlings who as she rightly observes are everywhere on the island.




In iridescent breeding colours, slick and sleek appearance and accomplished in all manner of morning serenades, it would appear that bringing gifts to your date is the best way of winning the lady over!
