George Herbert

It's George Herbert's birthday (born 1593). Here is his own church, which does indeed retain something of a Herbert atmsophere, despite much restoration. Follow the links to George Herbert and on to the Poems, which finish with the wonderful Prayer. 'The land of spices, something understood'...

  1. Wonderful poet. Unlike that altar frontal in the church.
