• Mont Saint Michel

    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 - Peter S. Quinn

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

    Il a été photographié des milliers de fois et pourtant tu réussis à en faire quelque chose de différent... et de si beau ! C'est un peu comme un rêve que l'on commencerait à écrire ; l'île sur laquelle on rêverait tous d'aller un jour :-)
    Bonne semaine :-)
