Frank Lloyd Wright - Poem by Laurence Overmire

Out of empty space
Wood, mud, boulder, brick and
Stone
He created completely new worlds
Dream realities
Enchanted domesticities
Reverent sanctuaries
To soothe the battered senses
And send the spirit
Leaping
Into an unbounded future
Of exhilarating promise and
Unimagined possibility.
