Lucky Tatties

by Hellon

A remember a braw wee sweetie
frae back in ma childhood day
bit...a couldnae remembur the name o' it
much tae ma dismay.

Always, oin a Friday night
ma da bought us weans a treat
an a wid hop frae fit tae fit
till a goat ma special sweet.

Then, savour it's delights an' suck
till it wiz nearly done
an' oot came the wee treasure
a lucky charm wiz always fun (found)

Bit a couldnae remembur the name o' it
an that made me offae ratty
then the penny finally drapped
it wiz a lucky tattie.

Hi Hellon
As always your poetry is a delight - I just love it. Sorry I've not commented before now - been undergoing treatment - so spending little time on my site.
But many thanks
