wund amang the sprots -
the cailleach
tellin'r beads

wind among the reeds -
the old lady
telling her beads
festival's en -
a lane pipie stauns
sax inch frae the muin

festival's end -
a lone piper stands
six inches from the moon
causies skimmer i the weet -
the hallion's neb
dreeps intae's bucket

cobbles glitter in the rain -
the clown's face
drips into his pail
