With fatherly protecting of deep green trees,

And touching welcome mountain breeze.

Shielded from the heat of the summer sun,

And guided by the butterflies’ fun.

I take my small inquisitive feet,

To a silent woodland seat.

To contemplate life’s big questions,

In this peaceful chapel reflection

I sit and think and ponder, then

Refreshed, I skip them home again.

Last summer while I was visiting Mr Day in hospital. On his daily walk he found a  chapel up in the woods above Klosterneuburg. It was a special place with an unbelievable atmosphere. You can see how I felt about here
