An Ode to St. Ninian’s Isle
Time passes
Memories fade
Dust collects
On untold treasures
No more people to plunder
No more Vikings to invade
Yet you remain the same
St. Ninian’s Isle
A breakwater against
The fierce North Sea
Waves still crash
Winds still howl
Shetland ponies still balk and bite
At the sight
Of your shoreline
May you remain the same
St. Ninian’s Isle
Until the elements melt
At the very end
Of this world
Then may you be recreated
St. Ninian’s Isle
As a haven in warm waters
May your green grasses grow
May your cool streams flow
Basking in the glory
Of the Son

  1. I think I could spend some time there...I wouldn't mind it at all! As long as I had enough warm clothes; some good music and my two furry, four-legged mates who think they are humans, anyway! Oh! And some food, too..perhaps even some fish and chips! :)

  17. So true Jerry as much as things change they remain the same and nature changes very slowly. I want to lay down in green grasses by cool streams. Thanks for stopping by pw!
