Huntingtower Fields, Almondbank

In time to come, when we are gone
In this same field of summer song
Where we once laughed and children ran,
Your child will be a woman
And my child will be a man.

The horse, no longer, will have wings
Shining, silver, in the sun,
The babbling stream, no danger, now
Where once a child would run.
And looking back, will you smile,
As if by this you will keep
The memory of a lover's kiss
And of dreaming without sleep.

Shall we meet there again, I know not
Though, in time to come
And when we are gone
In this same field of summer song
Where we once laughed and children ran,
Your child will be a woman
And my child will be a man.

For Geraldine.
