Here’s a wee tip fur ye, ir’ ye feeling a bit homesick ?
Jist’ log on’ tae Historic Hamilton”, it only a wee click,
Yil’ find oot how things used tae be, n’whit tae know,
Go on then, found it?, well ‘click’ and away ye go,,,,
There’s a medieval village been found jist’ off the M74,
Keep looking doon the pages, n’ learn much much more,
Aln Scullino seen a plaque, i realy hope he writes a book,
Half of Hamilton n’ Janette Mc Callum, awe went tae look,,
Margaret Caddens showed photos by hur da’ Tom Kinsella,
Carol Boyd, Isobel Mc Taggart, both said what a lovely fella,,
Someone wants a 1975, year book for the Holy Cross High?
We’d like tae see these photographs of all the times gone by,
Jackie Bendoris Hills, sent a photo” disco’in the town hall,
A kin remember earlier, in the 60’s when we all had a ball,
Look fur a poem by Wilma Bolton, about St Annes School.
Margaret Duffy, Nancy Skelton, and me, say it’s realy cool,,
Every post thats bin’ sent in, fae Lanark tae East Kilbride,,
Ye kin feel the pride “oozing” out it makes you warm inside,,
Next time ye hear ‘propaganda’ n’ awe the “council” crap,,
Remember it’s the people,who put “Strathclyde” on the Map,,
The above poem was written for Historic Hamilton by Hugh Hainey. Hugh, This brought a smile to my face.
