“A plaintive chant” a verse after seeing a picture of an ancient monastery.

A plaintive chant
In a minor key
Rich in melancholy contemplative
Across the barren wastes
Of an ocean of emptiness profound
Does thinly trickle
Its sacred songs
Along corridors of cool clean air
Within a steady gentle breeze
From cloistered walls distant
In the fading light
Of a tranquil eventide
Upon a deserted plain
Beneath a benign firmament
By a solitary skylark traversed

d.a.simpson
