A POEM BY DERMOT O'BRIEN: LEON CATHEDRAL, SPAIN

Both hands on the slab

where Jesus was laid out dark

to the depths of death.

Leon Cathedral

with the sun streaming thro’ light

blending the colours.

A prayer in itself

the stained-glass windows’ light

in Leon Cathedral

Fallen to the ground

like a flock of crows the leaves

of the red maple.

Located in northwest Spain along the Camino de Santiago, León Cathedral (Catedral de Santa María de Regla de León) is a French-style Gothic cathedral built in the 13th century over the ruins of ancient Roman baths.

Intricately carved portals, glorious rose windows, one of the oldest choirs in the country, and beautiful sculptures such as the Virgen de la Esperanza are just a few of the cathedral's many impressive features.
