Algy Hears Snatches of the Loch Monster’s Song


Reclining quietly by the edge of the loch at the end of a busy day, Algy could hear faint snatches of the loch monster’s song, as it roamed the watery depths. It sounded very much like the song of the Loch Ness monster:

          Hovoplodok – doplodovok – plovodokot – doplodokosh?
          Splgraw fok fok splgrafhatchgabrlgabrl fok splfok!

[Perhaps you may not hear the monster singing in Algy’s loch, but you can read the full text and listen to an audio recording of The Loch Ness Monster’s Song performed by the poet Edwin Morgan himself.]
