The contributor comments on his poetry and his life.
The contributor says that he is not a poet. He started composing songs when he came home to Skye. He used to think of some things when he was at sea. There were quite a few Scalpay men sailing with him - MacLeods and Morrisons - and they were capable people. He was in the Australian army and the Australian navy in the last war and he was glad to get home and marry his wife.
