Small and simple
During my recent trip to England, I had a lovely outing to Clayton Church:
An ancient church mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086).
The church loomed out of the sunlight
And the old wooden door looked like something out of a film set.
The simple yet elegant windows
Going around to the back of the church,
I could see the ancient walls
Next to the more modern part to the left.
The view from the back
Was stunning too.
Apart from its great age, the church is most famous
For having some of the oldest murals in England,
Painted by monks somewhere between 1080 and 1150.
These remarkable wall paintings were forgotten
And then re-discovered some 700 years later during restoration of the church.
Where there is ruin, there is hope for treasure. — Rumi
