Iolaire 1919-2016

Another day dawns
into another year
Glancing up northwest
where the memories abide

Headed home
that fateful morn
hopes dashed
on the Beasts at Holm

Nigh on a century gone
The memories raw
The teapot stands
where it stood in '19

Awaiting those
who would never return
from the depths
out at sea

From far away
my mind's eye beholds
the tower on the hill
overlooking the old town

We remember forever
those gone on ahead
in the service of their country
they gave up their all
