This poem is from the late, great James Slater of Portsoy whose vision inspires the work of the Portsoy Past and Present Community Group.
Poets and artists use their skill
depictin, bonny places;
Others delve intae the past,
and history retraces;
Reminiscin they will speak
o’ lang past days o’ yore,
Tellin’ tales that they hae gleaned
frae oot o’ ancient lore.
So if you’re lookin’ for a theme
Or subject for your pen
You’ll niver match oor Portsoy,
whaurever ye may ken.
