Far, Far Awa!


O how can I be blythe and glad,
Or how can I gang brisk and braw,
When the bonie lad that I lo’e best
Is o’er the hills and far awa!

It’s no the frosty winter wind,
It’s no the driving drift and snaw;
But aye the tear comes in my e’e,
To think on him that’s far awa.

My father pat me frae his door,
My friends they hae disown’d me a’;
But I hae ane will tak my part,
The bonie lad that’s far awa.

A pair o’ glooves he bought to me,
And silken snoods he gae me twa;
And I will wear them for his sake,
The bonie lad that’s far awa.

O weary Winter soon will pass,
And Spring will cleed the birken shaw;
And my young babie will be born,
And he’ll be hame that’s far awa.

  1. A lot of you guys may not remember MJ, but she used to post a lot on HuffPost and on the Realm long ago:

    I agree with Jack ~ yummly sucks!

    I really like my new helper ~ she’s been here 2 days now, one @ 4 hrs. & today @ 8 hrs. She accomplished more in 4 hrs. than the other did in about 12, & in the 12 hrs. over 2 days more than the other over about a 72-hr. month! The other one quitting turns out to be one of those blessing in disguise. 🙂

      Hey Hobette, this is very good news to hear about your new helper working out so well. Congrats on finding this new “blessing in disguise”. Very nice to hear some good news and something good happening for someone here at the Realm.

    Good morning all, Angus has had a poorly tummy during the night, up moping floors at 3am, but he seems ok at the moment, may need a visit to the vet today.

    Secret Service seeks sarcasm-spotting software http://www.thestar.com/business/tech_news/2014/06/05/secret_service_seeks_sarcasmspotting_software.html

    “Instead of searching for their sense of humour, however, the U.S. agency is looking for software to help them understand sarcastic remarks on social media.”

    MJ and I used to have a little game back on HP. Just a dumb thing, we’d wait until a troll mentioned Acorn, then it was “he said Acorn everyone drink”. It was great fun, but I guess you had to be there. She was someone I looked forward to running into on HP, one of my earliest friends there.
    Heartbreaking to learn that she has lost Jeremy. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

  17. fi says:

    FYI July 31st is International Orgasm Day.
