National poet donates his art collection for public viewing [Scotland]:
THEY adorned his flat in the west end of Glasgow for more than 40 years and Edwin Morgan, Scotland's national poet, could have sold them for a fortune.

But Scotland's makar has instead decided to donate his valuable, and very personal, collection of 70 works to be saved and displayed for posterity.

The 84-year-old has gifted all the paintings, sketches, drawings and prints to the University of Glasgow, where he studied and taught, because of his abiding affection for the institution.

I hope you're not planning on dying, Edwin, but I'm afraid you are.

Here's the Loch Ness Monster's Song from EdwinMorgan.com.
