Whether it is an Eastern Monastery Garden or a Western Benedictine one, the peace and solace to be found there are the same.
Hope will bring to us its gladness,
Faith shall take away all sadness,
While the gates of day are closing in the West,
Joy will come again with morning,
Shadows pass, but love is dawning,
God is Love and gives us all Eternal Rest.
In a Monastery Garden – Albert Ketèlbey (1915)
