Do you know this poem? Do you have any clues to help us find it?


"Lads in your plaidies lyin' still
In lands we'll never see,
This lanely cairn on a hameland hill
Is a' that oor love can dee;
An' fine an' braw we'll mak' it a',
- But oh, my Bairn, my Bairn,
It's a cradle's croon that'll aye blaw doon
To me fae the Soldiers' Cairn.

- last verse of 'The Soldiers' Cairn' by Scots poet Mary Symon.

E.M. MacGregor

You will find these lines in a poem called " The Soldiers Cairn" by Mary Symon. You will be able to hear it read on You Tube. Hope this of help.
