Greenness by stone steps in sun,
parades of gremlins in the rain.
and crowds of statues, dark leaves, stone,
water, outward and upwards thrown,
combined to set a garden-star
that stayed with me till Callander,
where, wet with torrents from the crags,
herbage expands while verbiage lags,
and showered petals link their songs
with choreography of stones.
Sally Evans, Callander, Scotland, editor of Poetry Scotland
