Worcester Cathedral, or Energy

Thousands at its beginning
investing many years
the footprint, effort, cost,
until it stands
to give to needy souls
in different kind.

Now, giving to those who come
in search of entertainment,
not in need,
we measure what is given
as shelter, warmth and light
in carbon footprint cost.

Ignoring at the centre,
burning, clear and still,
fount of all energy,
creation’s source.
