A poem for the Installation of the New Minister Elspeth McKay.
The first Abess in Cloister´s grove, forcing change as Love demands
The poisoned chalice passed in sight, yet Love demands she does not drink.
A higher view where Angels dwell is upon her shoulders bright
No politics nor Kirk Board stern can stop unfolding Love.
Ancient stones do quake and fall, maternal Love doth take it´s place
Altars made of Stone fall down for Love is here.
Stones adorned by men, ancient saints bowed down to Love and it´s Man of Sorrows
The day demands woman goes forth to slay Goliath and put to rest honoured time traditions.
Love comes and rests with her own and all is still, where Love is found
Rainbows of Light as Love descends, the snake is found beneath her feet
Appoints the best.
Elspeth comes and Love draws near. Surely Divine Love is best seen in the heart of a woman
and Love is reflected in Love.
