The Skylark Returns

The Skylark Returns

Spring has arrived with warming air,
The rain has ceased and the sky is clear.
A gentle breeze is swirling around,
As I hear a familiar distant sound.
Relaxing now, a pleasant surprise!
The lark has returned over the rise.
This tiny brown bird, obscure to see,
Filling the air with a song, so free.
He flies up high and sings his tune,
He glides to the moor but, all too soon.
His rivals take off and are rising high,
A splendid chorus as the minutes pass by…

I hope you enjoy the journey The Isle of Skye has dramatic mountains, wild glens and amazing seascapes; it offers a varied wilderness for free spirits.
