Tintern Church

Old Tintern Church
by Charles E S Fairey


Above Tintern an old church stands
Nature has taken St Mary’s back
With white witches and their almanac.

Trees and shrubs now stand praying
With east window stone tracery
A wiccan white witch’s ceremonial fantasy.

With tower doorway stone cross above
Old door and holy water bowl
Now magicians enter with wiccan soul.

Here Mother Nature has reclaimed
Her place among modern Wye
And Tintern below, St Mary’s on high.

Here the Goddess lives and breathes
Climbing ivy and growth abounds
Up the walls and about grave grounds.

To travel here steep cobbles you walk
To the ruinous church and wooded hill above
And below Old Tintern Abbey, monastic love.

Obelisk shaped tomb covered in green
Church with east end gable and iron cross
Open vault and stone walls with moss.

Stood standing over Abbey and Wye
Commanding all who love Pagan
St Mary’s beckoning mystic Morgan.

Such a fire laid waste to Mary’s
Nineteen Seventy Seven
After Mary’s became a Wiccan beacon.

Here spells cast by White Witch
And ceremonies once more dominate
Goddess and Nature with stone germinate.

Here stories of white witches spread
Where once Christian worship ruled
Now pagan initiates in rites schooled.

Looking out from ancient seat of Wales
Over Abbey and serpent Wye
Across this valley the Wiccans spirits fly
Out across all of this sacred land
From this church built by masons hand
Here Mother Nature rules
Over St Mary’s and all her ghouls.

Above Tintern this old church stands
Nature has taken St Mary’s back
With white witches and their almanac.
