Chalice Well by dutchshun
Chalice Well
Chalice Well is one of Britain's most ancient wells, nestling in the Vale of Avalon between the famous Glastonbury Tor and Chalice Hill. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and orchards it is a living sanctuary in which the visitor can experience the quiet healing of this sacred place. For over two thousand years this has been a place where people have gathered to drink the waters and find solace, peace and inspiration.

Please do not take my photo and post it elsewhere, it is my copyright. Do feel free to enjoy it as a fav or just by looking at it for a while.

The words in the poem below are not mine. The photo was taken by me. Editing of the image has been done by me.

This poem is from the Alice Buckton collection ‘Daybreak’ published in 1918

On The Heights

(To a fellow-climber who asked me of my destination)


Enough, that there is That beyond my soul

Which draws me forth! A veiled and brooding Dream,

That, as a gathering vapour, long may roll

About the valley, ere the morning gleam

Kindle its slumbering mist with golden fire!

Bidding it rise, to spread its dewy shade

O’er parching cities, barren waste and mire,

And stony rill, and silent songless glade!

I cannot tell the path my feet shall take

To those who watch the cloudy heights from far!

I only know my spirit is awake

With voices of the Hour, whose urgings are

A World’s necessity, gone forth in me

To seek the Wells of Immortality!
