Guardian Angel



In holier days than these the City Fathers stated
The Cathedral should always tower over all.
Nothing should be higher or slightly dominating,
No theatre or block of flats or hall.
And, so far, we've been lucky; the Cathedral hovers over
All the happy godless people down below
And when it's lit at night
It makes a lovely sight.
Religion really does put on a show!
A very different cathedral here:

Cathedrals that are lit up at night are very beautiful. Nice shot!
