The White Swan
‘Thou white swan, Sad thy condition, Pitiful thy condition, Thy blood flowing.’
In the nineteenth century, Alexander Carmichael collected hundreds of prayers, blessings and poetry from the Highlands and Islands.
These two beautiful poems – The White Swan and Song of the Swan - are perfect examples.
The text is letterpress printed, and the illustrations (by Frances Grant) are laser printed.
