Well, I tell ye, the first time ever I seen her,
She wasn’ much more till a baby –
six years, maybe,would have been her age;
and the little clogs at her,
clitter-clatter,
and her little hand
in mine, to show me the way, you’ll understand,
down yander brew,
and me a stranger too,
that was lost on the mountain;
And the little sowl in the house all alone,
and for her to be goin
the best part of a mile –
bless the chile!
Till she got me right –
and not a bit shy, not her
Nor freckened, but talkin away as purty
as a woman of thirty-
And-“That’s the way down to the School,” says she,
“and Saul and me is goin there every day;
you’ll easy find the way! –
and turns, and off like a bird on the wing,
Aw, a bright little thing.

On the steep sloapes overlooking the Tholt y Will Valley in Sulby lies a number of derelict Manx Tholtans and are called the Corrady, the last time I visited this area in 2004 the roof of this particular Tholtan was truly intact See 2004 image

Both the below images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
