Rome - 1 - Poem by Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello

Rome - 1 -

Rating: 3.6

History of Old Rome by Theodor Mommsen.
Let's begin from its origins.
The mortgages did notexist.
The wife had her husband and did not belong to the State.
The creditor was owner of something.
The debitor became owner of that same thing only when had paid his creditor.
This way the distrains did not exist as well as the procurers.
A foreigner could become guest of a Roman citizen.
All the Roman inhabitants wore the same pattern of tunic.
The travertine blocks got the sun on the dry calctufe.
The peperino stones were less precious but very useful.

Good write. Wasn't this guy given a nobel prize for literature? Yeah I'm pretty sure it was him. I too am interested in classical studies. Keep it up.

Your style remembers me an old annalist, from an ancient period of time when poetry was hold in esteem and almost obligatory if one want to show erudition.
