Harmony’s Ballet: A Poetic Ode to Love and Peace at Gunnersbury

By Fr Nilora SVD Swans dance, love’s gentle emblem, Pigeons coo, heralds of tranquil peace. In harmony, they frolic, a feathered dream, Gunnersbury’s waters, a serene release. Stand for love, a beacon so bright, Pray for peace, in the soft twilight. Harmony weaves, a tranquil art, In the land of heart, let joy depart.

Harmony at Hampton: A Riverside Prayer

By Fr Nilora SVD Beneath the boughs of Garrick’s Lawn I rest, Norris Bishop Marshall’s bench, a timeless crest. Before the chapel, a shrine to the Bard, In Hampton’s embrace, life’s beauty unbarred. Beside the river, a symphony of song, Nature’s chorus, where I belong. The flight of birds, a dance in the sky, Water’s gentle movement, a lullaby. Pleasing to the eyes, this vibrant scene, A portrait of serenity, evergreen. To the soul, a balm, a tranquil hymn, In this haven, my spirit takes a swim. With each passing day, joy’s gentle flow, May it linger and gracefully grow. In the shadows of trees, by the river so fine, I pray for this peace, forever be mine.

Harmony Unveiled: A Sunset Serenade

By Fr Nilora SVD In Hampton’s sunset, I witnessed your grace, A celestial canvas, a masterpiece to embrace. A moment of glory, your creation admired, Nature’s symphony, in the dusk, inspired. A special time unfolds as the sun takes its bow, Embracing the darkness, a celestial vow. In the twilight, your mark is warmly received, Harmony of beauty, a promise believed. The sun’s descent, a ballet in the sky, Painting hues of warmth, a mesmerizing sigh. In this time of sunset, a tranquil delight, Where day and night gracefully unite.
