… there is a pier

Another great picture of Portencross, this one by George Crawford. Another angle showing pier and shore with Arran in the distance. (Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald on Facebook)


Above Oblivion’s Tide there is a Pier
And an effaceless “Few” are lifted there —
Nay — lift themselves — Fame has no Arms —
And but one smile — that meagres Balms —

Emily Dickinson
