Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o 'A Lament for the Union' le David Ross, foillsichte an 2007. Tha e air a leughadh an seo leis an ùghdar.

'She used to hear a distant pibroch sound on the breeze those autumn evenings, back in that year when the child was still newly formed inside her. And when her husband was away at sea, she'd often climb the low summit of the hill and sit awhile, listening to that sad and lonely music, even if it was no more than some trick of the wind.

After darkness had returned to the land, only Inverness, tinsel-lit, would remain in view to remind her that she lived in the lenghthening shadow of the twentieth century. Strings of white and orange lights would glint like electric dewdrops on an unseen web suspended between the gentle inland slopes and the foreshore, where two last shimmering tentacles of light, separated by the invisible Ness, snaked into the blackness of the firth. Invisible also was the hospital which required her to make such frequent visits. But to the west she could clearly see the single beacon of light that marked entry to the Caledonian Canal while, to the east, temporary floodlights played on the foundations of the bridge that would eventually link the Highland capital to their side of the water.'

An dèidh ceumnachadh aig Oilthigh Dhùin Èidinn, dh'fhuirich Daibhidh Ros an sin fad còig bliadhn' deug eile, ag obair aig diofar obair bho òraidiche gu nigheadair-shoithichean. Sgrìobh e dreach dà nobhail agus ruith e Bùth-obrach de Sgrìobhadh Chruthachail airson a Theatre Workshop a bharrachd air cluich agus sgrìobhadh ciùil airson diofar còmhlan, nam measg Poetry Roadshow, measgadh facail/ciùil de bhàird is luchd-ciùil an àrd-ùrlair.

Nuair a thill e do bhaile a dhachaigh, Baile Dhubhthaich ann an Ros an Ear, thòisich e a' sgrìobhadh 'Highland Views' agus ag obair, mar bu mhotha, na fhear-ciùil agus na thaoitear, an toiseach leis a Highlands Music Centre, agus le Invergordon Community Arts Project. Bha uallach air a-rithist airson cùrsaichean ann an Dèanamh Ceòl agus airson Dòigh Fuaimneachaidh airson Colaiste na Gàidhealtachd a Tuath aig Ionad Alanais aca, agus cuideachd airson Cùrsa ann an Sgrìobhadh Chruthachail ann an Dòrnach.

An-dràsta tha Daibhidh Ros ag obair dha-fhèin mar thaoitear de ghiotàr, chruthachadh agus chlàradh.
