Terracotta

My friend Chris Green (also on WF) and I write a lot of poems together. It's something we very much like to do, in between talking online during our day. I would like to share on of these poems here. Hope you like it.

Terracotta


Alabaster pillars
reach to heights I’ve never known.
Marble indentations
feed the facets which have grown
carved before the spectacle
that time forgot to keep.
Oh these ancient sites I find
my mind decides to reap.

[FONT=&amp]Sculpted statues stand there[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]looking down with faces stern;[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]painted garments scaled off[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]overgrown by grass and fern.[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Dwarved I dwell among the mute[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]no figments of my mind[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp][FONT=&amp]looking at me with those eyes[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp][FONT=&amp]austere and far from blind
[/FONT]
Goblets made of copper
shimmer bright the vintage vine,
amethyst and ruby
circle close atop the wine.
Tables set for many
with a feast for all to share;
here before my hungry eyes
which now can only stare.
[/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=&amp]Mossy marble benches[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]are my bed now for the night.[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Hungry I go sleeping[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]in the slowly fading light[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]shuffle through the darkness[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]ghostly visions of the past[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]visitors from ancient times...[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp][FONT=&amp]But sleep now comes at last.[/FONT][/FONT]
