St Nicholas Church by Georgina Nottage

by Georgina Nottage

The Church of St Nicholas sits on high
spire high in the sky
Watching the generations go by
Seeing everything going on below
The people living in houses all
in a row, beneath
The Church of St Nicholas

For generations couples have stood at it’s alter
The Vicar wondering if the marriage will falter
The next time he sees them is at a
Christening of a son or daughter
A few of these babes will come when eleven
To confirm their belief in God in heaven, at
The Church of St Nicholas

Years have gone by and now they come
To say farewell to a beloved one
Eulogies will be said
Tears will be shed, at
The Church of St Nicholas

And now the pattern falters
Few couples now stand at it’s alter
Few babes cry at a Christening
Few boys and girls come when eleven
confirming their belief in a heaven
A few still come to bid a loved one farewell
And tears for years gone will be shed, at
The Church of St Nicholas
