Lincoln Cathedral

Earthquake, flames, plague and bombs
Limestone, glass, fossils to load up tons.
Obsolete artefacts alight in the blazing sun
Arts conceived to explain momentous accounts.

Staring, glaring beaming such a malice gaze
Declaring,inquiring thousands of years have past.
Frozen in stone, the one who devoured good feelings
Sits high up peering at the ones he reigned.

The font sits at the entrance of th cathedral
Carrying people through life's cycle.
Water lays and dries in the dark marble font
Gazing at the future christians who would concure
great things.

Lincoln Cathedral

The great Lincoln Cathedral perched upon a hill,
Perched with pride and joy.
It has seen everything,
The Black Death to WW2.

Made from lime stone millions of years old,
It was once the tallest building in the world.
Now it only stands at 83 metres tall.

The historic cathedral is as strong as a soldier,
Built in 1072 it still stands amongst Lincoln city.
It has been destroyed lots of times by many things,
The Lincoln Imp, a fire and an earthquake.

The beautiful cathedral has amazing stained glass
windows,
They are everywhere around you bursting with colour.The stained glass windows tell all the wonderful
stories from the Bible.

Lincoln Cathedral

The ancient cathedral remembers 
The people who have entered,
Beginning their Christian journey 
In the crowded nave.

The sun reflects the colours 
Of the stained glass windows,
Rainbows become visible on the stone floor
Telling the stories of the bible.

Limestone that is filled with old fossils
That are over one million years old,
Sat within the cathedral 
Used for its floor.

Big Tom chimes every hour
So you know when your late or not,
Count the chimes
And you'll be fine.

The organ sits within the cathedral
All elegant and old,
It is made with over 4,000 pipes
No wonder it can be heard.

The naughty imp who travelled with the wind
To Lincoln Cathedral,
He got turned to stone by the angels
For always causing commotion.

History of the Lincoln Cathedral.

The Lincoln Cathedral is from a million , 
Aged over 925 years 
Produced from lime stone 
Created from time and perfection.

The Lincoln Cathedral stands no matter what 
Sirvived fires to earthquakes
Bombs to a disobedient imp 
How phenomenal it is. 

The Lincoln Cathedral gathers you into life 
As the ark oak doors lead you into a journey of life 
The chimes from Tom the bell 
Tingles your ears with ecstasy.

The Lincoln Cathedral has no need to read and write 
All it needs is to see the stained glass windows 
That tells the bible off by pictures 
Lets the shine of the sun beam through and gives 
to colour of delight. 

The Lincoln Cathedral.

Lincoln Cathedral

The prehistoric cathedral.
Constructed out of stone as old as time.
The surviver living since 1072.
Enduring wars, earthquake and fires.
living on through the years giving people hope 
through the eyes of God.

Its singing bell dances elegantly from side to side 
Giving the pattern-filled cathedral a voice.
The chimes are the sound of religion, Christianity 
And positivity.

The nave of the cathedral.
The colossal arch like ceilings perchs at the top of the 
nave
Taking people on their journey through Christianity.
People gathering, praying left, right and centre.
Their ancestors crawling on their hands and knees for 
weeks
Going over steep hills and cobbles on their pilgramidge
Just to get to the cathedral.

The cathedral witnesses its own wars against good and 
evil.
Angels against imps.
Good against evil.
Heroes against villains.
Evil is encased in stone and concrete hung up as a trophy.
Never to be seen alive again.

The Mighty Lincoln Cathedral

The cathedral lies on top of the hill and looks over 
Lincoln City,
it's being a plague burial and a small housing estate.

The cathedral remembers more history than people 
have forgotten,
And lived through many disasters;fires,earthquakes and 
even war.

The cathedral has many doors that take ten men to open, 
Two double doors stand at the front of the cross welcoming people in.

The cathedral is home to a malicious imp who destroyed 
many things, so to punish him he got turned into stone,
When you come to the cathedral try and spot him but do notmess around as you may get turned into stone too.

The cathedral has multiple stained glass windows that 
possess beautiful and colourful paintings,
They told stories of the bible to those who could not 
read.

The cathedral houses Big Tom the wonderful golden bell,
He chimes every hour of every day to tell people the time.

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral is a historic building,
It is over nine hundred years old.
And is still perched happily upon a hill,
Although it was made in 1072.
It is made of limestone,bricks and partly
Even fossils.

As it was made in 1072,
It has seen many events like WW2 and the plague.
Its arch has survived through an earthquake and even 
A fire which is why it's still standing today.
It even remembers the time it all fell down.

The Cathedral hears all the arguments as to whether 
To add a slope to the entrance so that more people  
Have the experience of the Cathedral.

Lincoln Cathedral remembers the stain glass
Window,that was put up two times,
After falling down in an earthquake.
Some windows tell stories from the bible.

Lincoln Cathedral has a nave going through the
Center of part of the Cathedral.
It looks like the bottom of a ship,
Thats why it's called the nave,
Because nave means ship.

The Historic Cathedral

The historic cathedral stands,
Surviving an earthquake,
A fire too,
Yet the western side is still lasting 900 years.

The historic cathedral looks,
Like a decorated, ancient wonderland,
Like a haunted death trap from outside
But a vibrant heaven from the inside.

The historic cathedral has,
Multiple carvings of majestic figures,
A fossil-full floor covering the cross-like building
And memories all the way back to 1072. 

The historic cathedral remembers,
the horrendous time of WWII,
And being known as the tallest building 
For an astonishing 200 years.

The historic cathedral listens,
To Big Tom,
Alarming the time
With a gentle song at the beginning.

The historic cathedral carries,
Precious memories
That will be treasured for eternity.

Long live the cathedral...
Lincoln Cathedral.

Lincoln Cathedral

The ancient cathedral is made of stone,
wood and metal for the doors.
Forests and quarries chopped and dug,
for the building to be historic.
The stone has fossils from years ago,
windows stand narrow and tall.

Looking down at the people,
is a evil monster.
The little monster is an Imp,
but a long time ago it turned to stone.
Because it did wrong,
to angels.

Rainbow windows stand tall,
when it's sunny it shines.
Years ago a  cannon was shot,
some kind people put it back.
