Ammon Wrigley - "The Saddleworth Hills"

The following is a transcription of a work by Saddleworth poet Ammon Wrigley (1861-1946).

The Saddleworth Hills

The brave old hills of Saddleworth,
Broad backed and long of thigh,
That stare out into Lancashire,
And climb up half the sky:
Though some are rough they are friendly,
And if you wander there,
You will find there is no tonic
Like keen fresh Saddleworth air.
From Noon Sun hill to Cherry Clough
They gather in their arms
A half a dozen villages
And half a hundred farms.
