Annabella the poet

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
