Cul Mór stands for “large hill-back”
and people are called Mc.
For Cul Mór is the striking, unique,
distinctive, rocky highest peak
of a nature reserve, a rugged land,
moulded by a giant’s hand.
I wish I were on Cul Mór’s top
having the rambler’s deserved stop.
Cul Mór offers a beautiful view
that you can have a clue
what silence and sublimity mean,
how forces of nature are right keen,
effects of erosion ev’rywhere.
Sandstone outcrops, the ridge is bare.
I wish I were on Cul Mór to learn
how a wild area helps upturn.
Cul Mór’s twin summits are well known,
that charm which is its alone.
Steep gullies diving down to the ground.
stalkers’ paths, small
lead to the slopes, boulder fields and rocks,
auburn craigs and pleasant Jocks.
I wish I were on Cul Mór to feel
how all the powers of nature heal.
It’s a picture I’ll never forget.
to my regret:
I must confess I never was there.
A calendar picture makes aware
how beautiful our world can be
if we’re able to learn and see.
I wish I were on Cul Mór one day,
even if Cul Mór is far away.
