(I took this photo on December 31st 2013. A visit to Edinburgh has become our annual pilgrimage every New Years Eve. But this year was even more special, because it gave me chance to go and visit Greyfriar's Bobby, something I have wanted to do for a couple of years now. The whole story about "Bobby" is fascinating and I have tried to capture the "jist of the story" in this little poem. There are lots of other stories about the Old Kirkyard as well which are also interesting, and I will try and capture some of this in a later poem).
