Music sweet, yet be a piece of gossamer wings,
Aflight with angels of love divine,
Winging ‘way across the twilight sky,
Echoing forth the sounds of song
That blissfully fill all the air
With a rapture of romance and soarful fare.
Glorious tunes fill far and wide
The epigenic entire of paths inside
The everlasting auras of those aglow
With light upon light of heavenly flow.
The music compleat is nary complete
Till time is stood still fourfold upon time,
And all that resounds can then be abound
With light and love that produces a sound
Of clarions complete upon heavenly seats.
For all colors of candles that burn with a light
Of purity pure and heavenly might
Will then be poised and perfectly pleased,
To stay awhile upon flowered knees.
L. Grimley ‘75
If you should be visiting Scotland do try to see the Iona Abbey on the Inner Hebrides Islands. It is place where many go for spiritual retreats or just to find peace and quiet – a lovely feeling of tranquility washes over one just sitting or walking over the beautiful landscape.
Iona Abbey is located in the Inner Hebrides Islands on the Isle of Iona on the west side of Scotland. It is one of Scotland’s most historic and sacred sites, well worth seeing. It is very peaceful and beautiful. For more history on the buildings and crosses read here.

Right behind the St. John’s cross is the St. Columba’s Shrine

Here are some views inside the abbey.
I enjoyed this tour of Iona and Mull the best of all my sightseeing here in Scotland. Here is a view of the Forth Bridge and building of the new one on our way home.
Iona Nunnery is on the Isle of Iona in the Inner Hebrides Islands in Scotland. If you like medieval ruins this one is simply awe-inspiring. Here are some photographs from my visit. I also visited the Iona Abbey, but I will save those for another day.
