Way out beyond the stone clad walls
where hills are steep and ravens fed,
the quad-bike riding shepherd looks
for sheep, distressed or lost or dead.

Ten times a hundred fill the fold,
but every shepherd holds a place
where beasts are safe, are kept and held,
are held by duty, love or grace.

Verses 3-4 follow

Metre: LM
