Setting Foot on Iona

O waters of Iona crisp and pure!
O snowy sands from some Ægean shore!
Whisper to me now and end the yearning
Of a thousand years of pious learning.
What sweet melodies await us after
We are lain in earth, what joys, what laughter?
A waking dream! We know not when we sleep,
Tomorrow’s dead today their silence keep!
