A Poem In Stone Poem by Margaret O Driscoll

A Poem In Stone

Rating: 5.0


Awed by its architecture
I step inside
Gigantic Gothic arches
Rise on either side
Atop red marble columns
Along each side of the aisle
A collosal feat of construction
Created to Pugin's style
Splendid stained glass windows
Depicting saints of glory
Sun's rays shine through the hues
Each panel tells a story
Jesus and his apostles in white marble
The Last Supper around the table
Pricelss treasures by master craftsmen
Gifted, artistic, diligent and able
I pray for my family and I
As I stand there alone
In that graceful peaceful sanctuary
A poem in stone

What an inspiring poem to chronicle a visit to a hall of worship filled with treasured statues and handiwork from past ages. The descriptions set the scene in perfect flow and choice of words and the ending line - so perfect - a poem in stone. What family will not be blessed by this gesture and this chronicle? Thank you for this visit in graceful and reverent words.
