Blaeberry Mou

The Biggies have been making some animations of “Blaeberry Mou” a poem in Scots by William Soutar.

Listen out for Fulton’s playing of the chanter!

Blaeberry Mou
The flitterin faces come doun the brae
And the baskets gowd and green;
And nane but a blindie wud speer the day
Whaur a’ the bairns hae been.

The lift is blue, and the hills are blue,
And the lochan in atween;
But nane sae blue as the blaeberry mou’
That needna tell whaur it’s been.

William Soutar
