The loneliest water

The loneliest water
where some once lived
a boundary once
where land was shared

Far from others
fringed by frowning hills
ending out to sea
where an island with none left

The stream tumbles down
by derelict homesteads
the water stretches west
just round the corner

Outlines of walls
overgrown paths
the odd ovine
in a land once for bovines

From Luachair to Crola
From Dirisgal to Lamadal
From Ardmhor to Crabhadal
None now live - on Loch Reasort
