This isle is a wonderful calming place,
With soothing waves, big skies and space.
Who has passed these timeless shores?
On Long ships, whalers, creelers and more.
Distant lands beckon and call,
To offer new lives to one and all.
Sons and daughters have sailed away,
But their minds and hearts will always stay.
Time will pass and lives will alter,
These timeless shores will never falter.
