The book of Kells

In trinity it lies

Where it is regularly seen

By the world’s many eyes

 

People come

From far and near

To discover it’s meaning

That is so dear

 

The monks who wrote this piece of art

Are the reasons that in our history it plays a huge part.

 

Forever it will lie in College Green

Where to the eyes of millions it will be seen

 

That book of literature and all its Grace

Will forever have a scared place.

 

This book that was left incomplete is a mystery

yet it plays a big part

In Ancient Irelands History
