 More than a mother's love,

A divine secret,

Moved Rebecca to discern

Jacob was loveable.

"What was torn I have not

Brought to thee", Jacob attested,

The words of a man

Who did justly.

Renamed, after his wrestling,

And his maiming

He, Israel, could walk as one

Of God's nobility.

To approach God's house

- "Put away the strange gods ...

And cleanse yourselves" -

Demanded purity.

After the byways, 

Skewed routes, now

Leaning on his staff,

A true worshipper.

Seat by the shore: what you can see from it is below.  All near Callanish.
