Aberdour Greets Me Kindly ©

by Robbie Kennedy Bennett

In every forward step I feel I’m walking back,
Into the land of unknown past.
I sense some kind of welcome,
Has the Kingdom accepted this man at last?

Sunshine dances upon the Forth,
My emotions are dancing too,
A magnificent day and a wonderful view.
Aberdour greets me kindly nearing mid-day,
I look back and move forward in my own way.
Accepting my existence I yearn to learn more,
Stimulating time spent by this delightful shore.
Aberdour greets me kindly didn’t she so?
Aberdour she reminds me not to ever let go.

Aberdour is indeed a lovely shore
by: May

Another nice wee poem Robbie. Your love for Fife really shows through. I used to visit Aberdour a lot as a child, as a very eccentric great-aunt lived there in a house right on the shore. I have some wonderful memories of this delightful wee place in the kingdom.
