A Walk In The Hills

A man who loved the mountains

A Munro mountaineer

His photo shows a gentle face

A man of pleasant cheer


A day out in Glen Nevis

Aonach Mor to climb

He sent a text from Aonach Beag

On top and doing fine


And then no more was heard of him

Search party sent out

And found a body on the hill

Did his heart give out?


Perhaps a lonely place to die

Away and all alone

But for him the height of hill and sky

Time for going home
