Annabella the poet
An extract from “Arbroath” by Annabella Greig: Arbroath is a well known town,
With abbey, cliffs and sands.
It has its parks and commons too, Where you can hear the bands.
Its bathing pool is famous now,
Folk come from far away.
And, at the Arbroath paddling pools, Bairns spend the summer day.
’Tis fine to see ‘the Old Round O’
That towers above the town.
The abbey speaks of ancient days,
The pageant notes it down.
When king and courtiers, monks and all Are seen to make their way,
To commemorate a famous date: Independence Day.
