Kings College Chapel - Poem by V. T. Allsop

Beyond the well nurtured lawns
Kings appealing splendour is seen
Emerging from the grey misty dawns
such attraction reigns supreme
Generations have walked this way
To admire the beauty and design
Of this renowned chapel's array
choral music and devotional shrine
Picturesque windows depicting praise
encircle candles flickering light
As sweet voices of choristers raise
Heartfelt psalms of faiths delight
Walls adorned with crowns and roses
Enhance the tones which enthrall.
The eye of the beholder never closes
On the adoration of the Magi's call
Boldly standing through the ages
A welcoming mantle for all who pray
Revered worldwide in histories pages
"Kings" a treasure forever and a day
