For Sophie

We lit the fires on Formal
They burned across the brae
And left the hillside blackened
Now Sophie’s gone away
There’s a stillness and a sadness
In the air here left behind
The place is all in mourning
The flowers to earth incline
Their petals and their blossoms
For they are lonely too
Now Sophie has taken flight
Away into the blue
But soon she will return again
And when that day arrives
The flowers will raise up their heads
And the hillside come alive
From the ashes of the bracken
Like the phoenix bird of old
The green shoots will spring forth anew
As the strays rejoin the fold.
