Arthur Seat Edinburgh
It lies at the Centre of Edinburgh
a spectacular mass of beauty
originally a much alive Volcano
carved in areas of ingenuity.
Arthurs seat this volcano was named
as the Kings seat was carved in the land
tourists pour in by the dozen
snapping this landscape so grand.
When you climb to the top as I have
you will see a glorious sight
Edinburgh the City is dynamic
even more gracious by night.
The lochs at the seat are beautiful
birds spend a lifetime there
at one point there used to be sheep
grazing rich grass growing fair.
This great structure gave Edinburgh its shape
six hundred and fifty acres of land
in the distance there is music
coming from the Castles pipe band.
This is a must for all you travellers
the beauty is too grand to miss
rich in architecture and lovely people
Scotland is too beautiful to dismiss.
So if you ever want to travel
Scotland is a must
it will take you a while to consume
and for the lingo to adjust.
Scotland will always be my home
no matter where I go
once you see this gorgeous country
your love for it will flow.
