Olde and Ancient Buildings

Updated on March 21, 2014

Olde City's made of stone and made of brick,

And ancient Rome used concrete, brick and stone.

A grevious choice were I compelled to pick

Between the olde and ancient--Stand alone

And know that they are empty. Ever own

Such lonely space? Their art and wisdom come

To us and live. And tour guides show us known

And unknown things from mansion and from slum

To grace a table or a wall. So dumb,

We stand before them. newly filled with awe.

Of old or ancient meals we have no crumb.

Know God has placed you here. You never saw

The Roman Senate's gore--be thankful--Nor

The founding fathers' toil. Through Christ we soar.
