Mary's Song

A poem by Marion Angus. I'm not the first to find songs in the work of Marion Angus and Violet Jacob, and I won't be the last. Commentators find references in this poem to the ballads, to the Christian celebration of the Eucharist, and to the Song of Solomon. You can find the poems in 'Voices From Their Ain Countrie' edited by Katherine Gordon, published by the Association of Scottish Literary Studies.
