Caldey Monastery.

Caldey Monastery.
The present monks of Caldey
are Cistercians, a stricter
contemplative offshoot
of the Benedictine Order.
A group of monks came from
Scourmont Abbey, Chimay, 
Belgium in 1929 establishing
what is known as a “daughter house”.
In acknowledgement of their
Celtic predecessors, they adopted
St Samson, an early abbot of
Caldey, as their patron saint and rededicated the monastery as the Abbey of Our Lady and St Samson. Their new foundation also received the strong Cistercian tradition which had existed in Wales before the Reformation.

Poppy Field. Pembrokeshire.

 
A Poppy Field in Pembrokeshire.Wales.
A Poppy has many meanings:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      A Very Special Poem:                                                                                

“ In Flanders Fields”  (John McCrae).

In Flanders Fields the Poppies blow
Between the Crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the gems below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, Felt dawn, Saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie.
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our Quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, through poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.
