Early Morning Mist

Morning mist feather light

Covers our sleepy valley

Ochil Hills and River Forth

Railway coming from the north

Damp green fields

Where once was fought

The battle Bannockburn


In my cosy room I lie

Morning mist a lullaby

Double duvet cast around my bed

Getting old and hibernating

It still autumn agitating

Winter not yet here

So clear your head


A hearing test now startles me

All this noise I missed you see

Hearing aids upon the mantelpiece

Now they are back where they should be

New glasses too so I can see

A misty morning wonders never cease
