Oh Iona!
Ancient and sacred beauty!
Isle of ever-changing light
and generous hospitality.
To meet you is a delight ...
your blue mosaic sea
wild and stormy ...
bluebell on The Machair
heather on Lewisian in high places
lambs feeding on croftland
Marram protecting shore lines
gannet diving
waves crashing on Torridonian ...
where ancient lives in harmony with new.
Oh Iona!
I sing with joy for you!
