Cathedral Window

Emblazoned on cathedral wall,

Artist’s hand in sponsor’s Hall

Creates the leaded, crafted glass

That deftly lets the sunlight pass

Through shards of heavy tinted panes,

But turns away the autumn rains.


Skylight in autumnal ceiling,

shingles flake, a graceful peeling;

flecks that twirl to floor below

like golden flakes of autumn snow.


This is one ‘renovation reality’ that none of us need worry about!
