Statues

Some verses that came to mind as I toured the ruins in Rome, Italy.

Philosophers age-old
And gods long forgotten,
Ye stand in your might
Robed in fine marble,
Beheaded by time,
Neglect of earth’s life,
And nature’s dark storms.
Ye’ve lost many features,
Yet withstood all errors,
Gove to the living
Your knowledge and light,
Passion and beauty,
The salt of true faith,
And breadth to the view.
