Inspired by a walk on Morven

An Ode to Freedom

The 'Right to Roam' is a thing to be treasured,
In Scotland it's the law.
If you're a 'Good Boy' you can wander at leisure
Through forest, on mountain and moor.

There are just a few rules to obey - they're not hard.
Around livestock you need to attach
A lead to your human. And be on your guard
That they never leave field gates unlatched.

Rejoicing in freedom, your spirits will soar
As the prospect before you unfolds.
The wide open spaces demand you explore
And a joyous excitement takes hold.


  1. That scenery just makes you smile and want to run around!

  2. What beautiful scenery you have :) Wish we could race around in a place like that :) Milo,Jet & Arli

  3. Bravo bravo! What a glorious Ode!
    Keeping a lead on a human is hard especially w those vistas. Go Bertie Go run like the wind look at those ears flapping and that fine Wft tail. I love the photo of you and your shadow
