Amongst the Northern Lochs where the hills scrape the sky There roamed a chosen herd with no time to die Their souls corrupting all the life upon them blessed So the Guides of Providence gave to them one last test. One day a cow bore a calf of tiny size And they all left him there to die The calf, though tiny, had a spirit true and strong And though it knew, it did not blame them for their wrong Its small but rugged frame journeyed far across the land. And his goodly nature kept him safe from all harm But now I hear you ask "What happened to his herd?" And here must lie a bitter word Men cam from the south, along the pass With rope, iron and no taste for grass They rounded all from far and wide into their pen Shot their bolt and no cow would ever moo again Far away the calf now was fully grown Although his sizer was still as though he just was born His life was empty, he was saddened by his plight And so with providence, he fell to sleep one night He awoke to find a herd of his own kind Upon an island out of time
