Gloucester Cathedral – poem

Gloucester Cathedral

First Light 
draws back the covers 
on the building site we are all calling
revealing an unscheduled 
Flower Festival
No one saw it arriving or setting up
It has by-passed essentials such as
planning committees, budgets, comms
and even, so far as we can ascertain,
Lottery Funding
But here it is
unminuted and unsupervised
exuberantly commandeering the slopes
on all the builders are rejecting.

Open daily
Entry is free

Gloucester Cathedral precinct had became one massive building site for “Project Pilgrim”. But all over the piles of rubble and mess stuff beautiful things kept growing unplanned.
