Marshwood Vale - poetry by David Bushrod
Long since abandoned on this windswept hill, Like some proud outcast now it stands alone, Defending with indomitable will Something more precious than the crumbling stone For rosaries of fervent prayer have left A presence here by which the heart is stirred: Though lonely, desecrated and bereft, The echo of our faith can still be heard. Just like the shards of faith that can be found Entombed amongst the debris in the mind, Cadaverous beneath this narrow mound The Abbey's old foundations lie confined.
