The sea rose
The loch rose
And met
to take away

We all awoke
that morning
ten years ago
this month

That was a bad one
Look at that wreck
Look at my house
We all awoke

Minus five
They were
in the South Ford

The sea gives
The sea takes
We remember them
Next Sunday

(On 11 January 2005, five members of the same family were lost in the north of South Uist, when their car was swamped by a storm surge).
