Promise of the Dove ©

Granville Holt
Oklahoma, USA
2007

Patience is virtue schooled
Within story of your ancient rock
Relentless ocean waves crash and
Sea winds blow to test your stock

Yet no discontent fades treeless isle
Her beauty colors thistle and wildflower
Spirit island saint of Alba's heart
Glory renowned meek soul of power

To Faith a lone suzerain noble lord
In Earth so in Genesis proverb crust
Beneath a blue vault of Heaven veil
Emerald waters clear as Abbey trust

She awaits! O sojourner come!
Let her lips whisper sacred sounds
From Columba's bay to white sands
Over high Dun I His halo surrounds!
