Heather (aka Ur, Fraoch)
The gentle Highland Heather
Spreads her brat of purple glory
She withstands the Scottish weather
And tells her ancient story.
Sprigs of white heather brings us good luck,
Gather pink for a lover’s tryst,
Royal purple lings leave us awestruck,
Heather borders the road to paradise.
Called Fraoch by Scottish warriors keen,
Who plucked the plant from the brae,
And brewed by a good Scots colleen,
Heather ale is still drunk to this day!
