  1. Almost like two recombined shorter poems, lovely rhythm to it. An interesting picture as well, old statues are always a bit sad. Maybe its the faces worn by time?



    • The statue is part of pair in Hyde Park. I’ve always been fascinated by them and I make sure I visit them every time I go to London. One of these days I’ll get around to researching their history. 🙂

      The lines hit me out of nowhere the other night. It was weird, but I love it when a poem flies out like its always been there. 🙂


  2. My favorite line is “Take the past/give me now” which seems so fitting for this beautiful figure, trapped in old marble for so very long. I envision her wanting to be set free. A beautiful pairing, once again.


  3. At first glance, I thought the lady in the statue had her leg out, and she was holding onto her toes. 🙂 Once I realized what it actually was, I quite enjoyed it and your wonderful poem. (I still see the leg though if I just glance at it). 🙂
