The Boy in the Train
Many years ago when I lived on the outskirts of Glasgow, my aunt used to recite Scottish poems; one of these was "The Next Stop's Kirkcaldy". I notice you refer to this poem as The Boy in the Train. For more than 50 years now I have always thought the latter title was correct. Can you please advise. I have lived in Cheshire now for over 40 years and have just started reciting poetry again at various concerts and one of these poems is titled "The Night MacAllister Danced Before the King". Do you know this poem? It is always very well received here and has also been recited at a couple of Burns Nights, too. So pleased to have discovered your site. My late husband and I spent many happy holidays in The Kingdom of Fife, particularly in St Monans, Anstruther, Ely and St Andrews. Ah! Happy Days!.
