A Gathering Of The Clan
Cnoc Elachan

Across the world the pipes are heard,
and ancient Highland blood is stirred.
Although for many it may be thinned,
the genes are strong, the call undimmed.
We yearn to see the Highland home
left by our kin, the world to roam.
In other lands, on foreign shores
they settled down. Yet still they bore
a love for Scotland's glens and hills,
mountains, and lochs.  A love instilled,
though many centuries have passed, 
buried deep and long, until at last,
long lost descendants can't ignore,
the call of Clan, tradition, and lore.
We seek our roots, ancestral lands
where our forefathers made their stand,
in struggles for the Clan and Chief,
of victorious times, and others grief.
We feel that, to the Clan we belong,
it may be thinned, but the Blood is strong!
