We Can Only Be Onlookers


The call precedes

the chorus of arrival

A delphian chant

from an ancient score


We can only be onlookers



of the long






over the Forth




on song


          – Fading                                                          – – faint


– – – far                                                                            – – – – beyond


Our horizon


We can only be onlookers
