The "Mont Saint Michel" (English: Saint Michael's Mount) is a rocky tidal island in Normandy, France. It's a huge monument with an abbey and a village. UNESCO has classed the Mont Saint-Michel as a world heritage in 1979 and this mecca of tourism welcomes more than three million visitors a year.

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
