awa to where ?
To the bleaching fields by the Dighty,
spreading linen on the grass
to dry and blonde.
Its fallen angels
sooking up the sun.
(notes – 1. Tenerife- ee and Finger-only were someones memory of a friends pronunciation.
2.The Dighty Burn had dozens of mills along its length and the linen was originally bleached and laid out to dry in the fields next to the burn.
3. The Fallen Angels beauty parlour is round the corner of the community centre. )
