I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I hope you guys enjoy being transported to the drizzly, grey North East of Scotland!

A Young Quinie Caad Helen by Ali Christie

A handless young quinie caad Helen 

A clumsy young girl called Helen

She drappit a newly bocht melon-

She dropped a newly bought melon-

She was fu o’ dismay

She was full of dismay

Fin it rowed doon a brae-

When it rowed down a hill-

Noo they’re chasin a melon in Ellon! 

Now they’re chasing a melon in Ellon!

I love these poems, they always make me giggle. I hope you guys enjoy these posts every once and a while!
