The following poem by Alice Elliot appears full-page opposite this photograph by Nichol Elliot, On the Tweed:


Where Memories Flow.


WHERE memories flow
In sunset dream,
Our footsteps go
Beside the stream.


Dear homesteads rise,
Dear voices call,
And dreamer-wise
We greet them all.


Love moves beside,
And, hand in hand,
Where heav’n is wide
We walk the strand.


God’s tide and ours,
Afar yet near,
Though tempest lowers
Its depths are clear.


Warm waits yon glow
With Dawn to blend, ⎯
Those waters flow
To some great End:


Far Goal that draws
Below, above ⎯
Through living laws
Of Light and Love, ⎯
Of Light and Love.
