Ireland 2006 Part 4

Friday, March 16, 2007

Here are some more pictures taken at Muckross Abbey. Here you can see the remains of the abbey and the cemetary that remains. The third picture is of a tombstone that we saw there.

The saying goes

"Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not here. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you wake up in the morning hush,

I am the swift uplifing rush of quiet birds in
circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at mz grave and cry;
I am not here. I did not die."

The last picture is of Anna at a near-by waterfall. More to come...
