Glasgow Girls Inspire Poetry

Bonnie, Bonnie lassie frae Glesca toon starts the first line of a poem by the famous Scots poet Kailyard Stripling.

This ode, from the book of poems Hame Thochts Frae Hame, displays the femininity of the average Glasgow girl. It is a perfect picture of how one particular Glasgow girl inspired the poet.

Illustrated by the great Scots artist Martin Horan, this anthology of Stripling’s poems in the Scots language can be purchased from your local bookshop, classy High Street book stores, Amazon, or any back street barber’s for an exhorbitant price.
