Circus Lane

Have you ever stumbled upon Circus Lane?
Have you seen its narrow cobbled ground,
Walls ivy-clad?
Have you walked at night
When the moon hangs over Saint Vincent’s kirk
Like a beggar’s tooth?
Or wandered through in the dreich haar
Waiting for Mr Hyde to crawl out of the mist
Like a troglodyte from his cave?
Or perhaps you’ve only passed through by brightest day
And wondered at time,
That has left this drowsy street behind.

  1. Really fantastic imagery there Mr Landers. Dreich Haar nailed it!

  3. Tres belles paroles, monsieur.

  4. And to think we knew ye when….Congrats, and love. And haggis.
