The Germans Are Coming!

On this day in 1945 Dundee’s Unicorn then known as HMS Cressy accepted the surrender of a German U-Boat. Not bad for an old ship built in 1824.
Thought I’d posted this before but I don’t see it anywhere when I search, so here it is for the first or maybe the second time.

The Fog

DSC_0053.jpg

The fog is an illusion—
A master of disguise,
Which hides the tangible
Before our very eyes.

But when the fog has lifted
Everything’s still there,
And the tangible
Only seemed to’ve disappeared.

In the early morning
Or late at night,
The fog descends
Upon various sites.

It gives an air of mystery
That has long prevailed.
Dangerously intriguing
Is the fog’s foggy veil.

Some fog forming on the Tay, would have been good if it had been a bit thicker but it wasn’t to be.
