The al' meal mill in Portsoy is tae become a set o
flats. I walked bye aye day and saw it lang afore it hid existit wi a water wheel turning
cogs tae flatten the oats tae mak the porridge. The first twa bits o the tune are fae the
shrill voiced bemoaners o time's passing 'n then the third bittie comes fae the deep
voiced philosopher thit kens that the clock cannae run backwards.
|The old Mill in Portsoy is to be converted to flats*. I walked past one
day and imagined the site before the mill had existed with its water whell turning cogs to
flatten to oats to make porridge. The first two parts of the tune are from those shrill
voiced people who bemoan the changing times and the third part comes from the relaxed
souls who know that clocks do not run backwards.
