“Sunrise in the Highlands”
Sunrise on the backdrop of the Highlands,
how beautiful a place and time,
mellow and calm.
A young lady sits on a hill
watching her beloved sheep graze.
“Guinevere” is the young lass
with curly, blonde hair
who didn’t attract the attention of others.
Her hair color in a sea of redhead
and brunette Scots made her ostracized.
She was glad of this, however,
because spending time outside
with her sheep
was the most important thing to her.
Sunrise brought her excitement
and peace each morning.
A heavy sigh escaped her lips
as she did think about her future.
Would anyone ever care for her,
a common, plain sheepwoman?
The sun rose steadily amongst the clouds
and gifted the hills with a pink hue.
How beautiful, Guinevere said,
As she jumped up to her feet
and raised her arms to the sky.
