Let’s go, he said.

There’s still time, if we’re quick,

Let’s go, he said

Take this road, he said,

Down there, to the left,

We can make it, he said

Park here, he said,

Come on, hurry up,

Nearly time, he said

Stop here, he said.

That’s it, we’re here,

You can look, he said

And I looked

And I wondered

As the sun dropped down

As the sky turned gold

At St Peter’s Kirk

At the Bay of Skaill

At the end of the day

As the sun went down.

Thank you, I said

For the gift of the sun

For the gift of the moment

For the man who had brought me

For the love that he’d shown me

Thank you, I said.
