So today I have to write something influenced by a photograph.
This poem was inspired by a photo I took in 2016 at the Château de Versailles outside Paris.
What beauty what glorious beauty
Marble rocks that bring
Back memories of Cupid’s love
Reflections we sometimes miss
Oh beauty such glorious beauty
Columns that tell the story
Of Romans and empires long last
Of futures yet unforeseen
For the past is doomed to be
Yes beauty, it is glorious beauty
Colours which words cannot find
Yet so vivid in our mind’s eye
Details we cannot perceive
Each one creating a whole
Thank you for reading.
