Images of Edinburgh

For those of you who know the city – here’s a  wonderfully evocative poem by Richard Mulvey. It comes from his collection: ‘Poetry for the Divided’. Check it out at:

Poetry for the divided cover 2


I walk through history, on these Edinburgh streets

The monuments to time and place soaked in the summer rain

Princes Street gardens invites in all dreamers

George Street drunken amongst the revelling night

Edinburgh castle dominates you

With the majestic moment of time passed

See the castle everlasting in your passing

As you head to the pubs on Rose Street.

The Scottish enlightenment awakens you

After the night of drinking pints of heavy

The Edinburgh sky will cover you

So you can touch it at your pleasure in this moment of pain.
