Alabaster skin almost translucent in light;
Veiled shadows reveal the rays dancing through.
A soft fragility masks the aged figure;
How has it lasted hundreds, nay, thousands of years.
Unprotected from the elements, time has worn off her details,
How did they carve this beauty before the modern age?
But still she stands, a beacon of strength and beauty,
Amidst the ruins from when Rome did fall.
One thought on “Rome Has Fallen”
Your words make the age very easy to see, Dawn! 💞💞💞
