Ah see the Muin
and the Muin sees me,
wi ma butterfly stitches
at the A and E,
cos a lunatic crossed paths wi me
when the muin wis muckle and fu.'
The gazers ca'ed ye Lucifer,
yir big braw licht droont oot the stars,
but they showed us aw yir battlescars,
oh wit a pummel,
yi took fae aw they asteroids,
withoot a grumble.
Oh Muin,
you soulful silvery stane.
An orb tae wax,
a baw tae wane.
They broke bits aff ye and brought them hame,
and ah stood in a queue tae touch wan.
And you have touched me mony a nicht,
companion lantern, lunar wick,
the weary world bathed in yir licht,
feels hushed and altered.
Oh Muin yir burlin roon and roon,
tae hoist they oceans up and doon,
yir tidal friction sich a boon
tae life's potential.
we couldnae be withoot yi Muin,
sae influential.
And yet each year that passes by,
ye creep away fae gravity.
In billions oh years ye'll brek the tie tae gang awa.'
Ah doot there'll be a human e'e
oan Earth ablaw.
Ah see the Muin,
and the Muin sees me,
as ah plant ma seeds and howl.
In wan hawn ah've fist o' muck,
in the other a trowel.
