Poetry

I have been writing poetry for over twenty years, most of which has been written for, or has been turned into songs, some of which used as spoken word alongside music, and some as stand-alone poetry.

On this page I will be showcasing the latter stand-alone poems as spoken word performances in a video form.

The first poem ‘Div yi ken far yi cum fae?’ is a poem written in the ‘Doric’ language. Doric is a minority Scottish language mostly associated with the North-East of Scotland. This poem is about ‘Cultural Identity’.

Div yi ken far yi cum fae?

div ye ken far ye cum fae
div ye mine fa ye are
is aire shame that surrounds ye braakin at faa
faain doon intae minin minin fa ye are
faain doon an yer whinin minin fa ye are

bit ets bonny en ets braw en ets beautiful en ets rale
en ets aathin yiv binn lukin fur

div ye ken far ye cum fae
div ye fa ye are
is aire shame that surrounds ye braakin at faa
faain doon inta minin, minin fa ye are
faain doon an yer whinin minin fa ye are
