The Cool Canopy of Trees

The cool canopy of trees

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
