Now: ye’ve heard plenty fae the lass; some wurds o’ wisdom the noo shall pass, fae the pen (and quill) o’ the greatest bard ‘ere heard:
The Dean Bridge is a very magnificent sight,
Because from the basement it is a great height.
And it seems most attractive to the eye,
And arrests the attention of strangers as they pass by.
The braes of Belgrave Crescent is lovely to see,
With its beautiful walks and green shrubbery.
'Tis health for the people that lives near by there
To walk along the bonny walks and breathe the sweet air.
Therefore all lovers of the picturesque, be advised by me
And the beautiful scenery of the River Leith go and see,
And I am sure you will get a very great treat,
Because the River of Leith scenery cannot be beat.
Aye: brings a wee tear.... that McGonagall kent a thing or twa...
