Fred the Fush by James Robertson c2005

Fred the fush,
He had a wush,
He wushed that he
Wis in the sea,
Swimmin wi his mate
An haein a yatter,
And no on a plate
Swimmin in batter!

English Version

Fred the fish,
He had a wish,
He wished that he
Was in the sea,
Swimming with his mate
And having a yatter,
And not on a plate
Swimming in batter!

  1. Ah, the lure of the sea… you’ve captured it perfectly! I stumbled along reading the poem… then read the English version and flew right through it!! ha ha! It’s difficult for me to read or speak like a good Scotsman!! πŸ˜€

  2. Hi Andy. It’s good to see you back – hope you had a good break. I was off my blog for three weeks, too. Needs must.
    The poem is quite a hoot, and it sounds even funnier in the Scottish version. I can understand Fred’s sentiments completely. I have to agree with the comment above about the lovely silvery shimmer in the second photo.
    Happy Valentin’e Day!

    • Thanks Millie, even though I’ve now been away for a further two weeks or so, it just seems to be a very hectic time at the moment! As you say, needs must!
      And thank you for the Happy Valentin’e Day, you are the first person to ever send me a Valentine’s message of any sort! πŸ™‚ I should have been on here yesterday, then I could have at least of wished you a Happy St David’s Day! πŸ™‚
      Glad you liked the wee poem, and the photo to go with it.

      • Hi Andy. I haven’t been on my blog for ages, either- since I reblogged Valentine’s Day – and almost all of January, too. I just keep popping on to reply to comments in my inbox. Hope all is well with you, and the ‘hectic time’ is simply hectic and not anything worrying.
        I hope to do a post this week, but it’s a case of ‘we’ll see’ at the moment. Talk again soon. πŸ™‚

      • Hi Millie, thanks for the concern, but all is fine up here in Scotland, and down in Cornwall πŸ™‚
        You’ve been more conscientious than me, some of my comments were almost 3 weeks old! 😦
        Hopefully over the next few days I’ll be able to catch up on some of your, and some other peoples, blog posts – I always feel guilty for not checking out my fellow bloggers posts’!
