The Knight’s Walk

The Knight’s Walk

It is like climbing Calvary
One needs to stop and rest
Before you reach the hilltop
And there you’ll find you’re blessed.

There are benches erected on the way
Like the stations of the Cross
Where you can sit and meditate
On your blessings, pain or loss.

And as Jesus met with Simon
You’ll meet kindness too
In a neighbour or a tourist
All enamoured with the view.

Nature is all around you
In the meadows and the woods
In the flowing river Shannon
And the singing of the birds.

You’ll feel you are in heaven,
In the dreamlike state you’re in.
And you’ll thank him in person
Desmond FitzGerald, Knight of Glin.
