THE POET AND I 

Alex Harvey

 

If I could write like Robert Burns

And my words flowed free

If I could write like Robert Burns

I'd give my love to thee

 

If I could paint a picture

Of the bird of the shining shore

The poet and I would would be as one

I would not ask for more

 

We would sing of Highland Mary 

And follow where she goes

And tell the mountain daisy

My love is a red, red rose

 

The poet and I would walk the lane

And sit on the banks of the Don

The poet and I would write a hymn

And walk by the light of the moon

 

To sit by the fire with boney Jean

Hide from the Winter's blast

And talk of Tam o Shanter

And think about the past

 

We would sing of Highland Mary 

And follow where she goes

And tell the mountain daisy

My love is a red, red rose
