This paving stone lies in the middle of the Merchant City area of Glasgow. I almost missed it and three others on my power-walk through the city one morning. A fine tribute to those who built the city and the industrial world.
Ghostly workers sleep below
They hear no rain nor heel and toe
Think of them where the forges glow
In the Glasgow of long ago
Note: Edwin Morgan was named Glasgow’s first Poet laureate in 1999.
