Ash Wednesday

Aldeburgh beach, Suffolk
Blessèd sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit
of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated

And let my cry come unto Thee.

From Ash Wednesday, T S Eliot.


  1. Beautiful picture with a lovely poem. Perfect to set the tone for Ash Wednesday. I came over from Sunday Snippets.

  2. Thank you, Noreen. Welcome! I hope you'll look in again!


I'd love to read your comments, and I'll try to reply to each one.
