‘For the Opening of the Scottish Parliament, 9 October 2004” By Edwin Morgan. Read by Liz Lochhead for opening of the new Scottish Parliament. 9 October 2004.

Insight from Liz Lochhead in a video to Edwin Morgan:

“I love you because over the years I actually got to know you well enough to to call you Eddie, not Edwin, and that you actually let me say – gave me the job of saying – your wonderful poem “For The Opening Of Parliament” out loud, because you were too shaky in your pins to do so at that point, and you were very tough with me about how to put the emphasis on certain bits.”
