Tintern Abbey (Welsh: Abaty Tyndyrn)
The Ghost in man, the ghost that once was man
But cannot wholly free itself from Man,
Are calling to each other thro’ a dawn
Stranger than earth has ever seen; the veil
Is rending, and the voices of the day
Are heard across the Voices of the dark.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson
