Alamootie Greetings Card


This beautiful greetings card features a quote from Vagaland's poem 'Alamootie' on the front, with the full poem inside. The watercolour artwork is by talented Shetland-based artist Aimee Labourne. 

Thomas Alexander Robertson, who wrote under the pen-name Vagaland, is one of Shetland’s best-loved poets. In both English and Shetland dialect, his poetry celebrates traditional ways of life that few people today have experienced. Vagaland cared deeply about ‘da aald true wyes’, and his writing is a reminder that there is inevitably something lost when we rush headlong towards the new.

Last published in book form in 1975, Robertson’s poetry has become increasingly unavailable. Love in Human Herts, a new selection of his work has been published, containing thirty of Vagaland’s greatest poems and a glossary.
