Edinburgh Festival

Festival mayhem
Fans gather for performance
Royal Mile chaos 

Flags, every nation
Fly proud atop battlements
Pot-pourri of tongues

Clan tartans, squian dubhs
Ancient tribal traditions
Wild Celtic outlaws

Clear amber nectar
Oak casks, golden honey tones
Highland, Island, Spey 

Venues, queues, reviews
Chapels, Bedlam, marquees, crypts
Mystery, romance, fun

Evening falls, tattoo
Lone piper on parapet
Rousing call to arms 

Castle gates, welcome
Visitors ascend in droves
Anticipation 

Drums beat the rhythm
Marching pipers, formation
Bagpipes, fireworks 

Late-night revelry
Balmy evening, soft light breeze
Night shutters come down
