Was it our dear Kitty who mentioned where she would like to be finally.
Mine would have to be Salle, it is a favourite of Norfolk Church enthusiasts, isolated, wild and vast. Pronounced Saul, it booms out to travellers across the Norfolk plain like an architectural foghorn..
The Church was rebuilt in the 15th century, rather than use cheap local flint, it was paid for using costly Barnack stone from Peterborough, this was the generosity of the Uffords, Mautebys, Morleys, and Brewes, and they were duly blessed for their contributions with two feathered angels waving censers over their coat of arms above the west door.
The church is more of a Cathedral, and the view from it's window over the Norfolk countryside on a clear winter evening, is one of utter tranquility.
The Church of England is the true Museum of England, and it's buildings should be more treasured as a result. Every breeze that blows over a meadow is said to leave some memory of it's passing in the lie of the grass.
I have wrote a poem to go here with my blog.
HEAVEN ON EARTH
The summer sky of blinding sun
Gone the cold winter has passed
From it's fury, so that I
Could bask, and embrace it's warmth,
My task well done.
In a garden, where birds of beauty
Take it's flight,
My soul lays with my love
Beneath the soil, where light in darkness lies
In Paradise, of his delight.
Till the moon rises, and dark clouds sleep
Keep me wrapped in arms of thine,
Where endless days
In nature's wood, I dance with thee,
My heart is yours, my love divine.
