THE PAST OF TINTERN ABBEY # EXPLORED 148 FEBRUARY 17TH, 2012

THANK YOU ,MY FLICKR FRIENDS FOR THE GREAT SUPPORT

 

THE PAST OF TINTERN ABBEY

 

Monks walked slowly here

Around Tintern Abbey Church

Poverty and prayer

 

Choirs of voices

Haunt the stone monastic walls

Matins and Vespers

 

Till death they lived there.

Then monasteries were ended

Strangers now walk here .

 

By Henrhyde

  

Tintern Abbey 1131 -- present day.
