that change will come
to the world.
That the breeze
will shift the war.
And when you return to the shieling,
my finger will trace
in the dimple of your spine.
In honour of Remembrance Day, Bradan Press brings you this final poem excerpt preview from Lus na Tùise / Lavender, a volume of new Scottish Gaelic poems by Marcas Mac an Tuairneir coming out in November 2016.
