Scottish Past ©

Anthony Ewen
Filey, England

I dream a dream of sons and lovers
Of passion and pain of fathers and brothers
Of tempest and storm of people and pride
Of future and past thatís hard to divide

I dream a dream of hills and glens and waters of blue
Of long summer evenings and mornings of dew
Of endless vistas each a story to tell
Of Sunday mornings and the kirk bell

I dream a dream of a mother's embrace
Of a woman's tenderness of a woman's grace
Of a mother's words and telling advice
Of getting away wi' it once but definitely not twice

I dream a dream of my lover's first kiss
Of a spirit from when parted my life is amiss
Of the woman whose love embraces all that is life
Of the woman, my lover, my ardour, my wife
