The Rock


Behold this girth

Now like a boulder giving birth

Born from the earth

Until nature’s mason carved its face

And cleaved a throne of granite

To this place

As bare and beautiful

As any monument could grace

Resounding presence like a drummer’s beat

A silent sentry guarding Samuel Street

  1. Is the rock still there? If it only knew that your words immortalized its existence. As if a boulder can be anything but eternal. One of my favorites and one of the few with rhyme.
