The Cross

By Francis C. Golffing

The sound of cavalry

Comes ebbing on the wind

Wind is my torturer:

Impatient to abet

Driving rain and sleet;

Patient to join with snow

In timbering my cross.

I'm leeched with snails of wet

Which will freeze when the snows

Start from the mountain tops

Down every glen and coomb.

The horsemen and their drums

Are silenced by the wind:

Who goes there? No one goes

As from my Calvary,

Ice-ridden, I descend

Join the conversation

Glorious sights... and "In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone."

Travelling is much more cool when there's fun, and this group of people was a great company throughout all the trip. Thanks dear Manisha

I love #5, but also #1 is such fun. And #3 is wonderful because it shows the size of that sweet little structure. What would you call that? A tiny chapel? A small grotto?

Thanks dear Jill. I think it is called a niche but I'm not 100% sure.

Cool. Unfortunately we only had 6 days so we didn't visit a very big part of Georgia. Next time perhaps. Thanks Peter

It was a very fun travel all around, fortunately. I agree with you on #5 with that big white wall just behind the church. Thanks dear friend smile
