Poetic Pleasures

Craig Weldon:

Interested to read Alan Blanco's article [re the poetic pleasures of hill lists] in TAC44. A few years ago, while perusing maps, I came up with a similar idea. Admittedly they don't rhyme, or even scan very well, but it is an interesting idea.

Helen McLaren:

Inspired by Alan's article on lists in TAC44, here is my own attempt at a hill list poem:


Ben Tee, Ben Hee
Carn an Righ
Tinto, Marsco
Beinn a'Ghlo
Sgurr Dubh, Sgurr Mor
Sgurr Dubh Mor
Geal Charn, Carn Mor
Geal Charn Mor

An Stac, An Stuc
An Storr, An Sgurr
Morven, Fashven
Blaven, Rois-Bheinn
Rinnes, Canisp
Wyvis, White Wisp

"Cubbie Roo":

Sweethope Hill

(In line 7, say "An" while breathing in and "Suidhe"while breathing out. Say line 8 as rapidly as possible.)
