‘Where, ‘twixt totter’d stones and ruins fade
The amber glow of woodland glade
Where, ‘neath canopies of leafy shade,
Bluebells droop like timid maid,
There they slept–their really like entomb’d,
‘Mid breaking dawn and nightly gloom
Careless of the ages past,
But a single to other, cleaving fast.’
Chapter Property, Inchmahome Priory,
Lake Menteith, Scotland.
