Mont Saint Michel

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

There is a fairytale place

That reflects its dream

Through centuries of grace

In waves of ocean stream

 

Mont Saint Michel

With a garden of its light

So much of timeless spell

In search of wrong and right

 

This place Mont Saint Michel’s

In centuries of glows

And hundreds sounds of bells

In rising highs and lows

 

Where trust in God was true

Like mountains stood high

In its conviction onto

The heaven blue deep and sky

 

This place where life is creed

And the good shall survive

A tree to grow up not cede

But stay and prosper contrive

 

The fruit of blossom coming

Like spring comes in its truth

Full insignia blossoming

In eternal of our earth’s youth
