An Old Country Vicar

A massive vicarage in the country.

Dark and dreary are the barely furnished rooms

A lone figure with a candle

walks these ice cold halls.

The vicar, dressed all in black

is as somber as his vestments.

Often he sticks his pointy nose

in volumes of ancient books and Bibles.

Preaching solemnly to sinners

of a Savior who died for them.

  2. Sometimes you hit on something interesting and unearth beauty when you didn’t expect it, I sure never heard about him until now. Nice digging.
