O'er an etoile of streets
made for merchants,
a remnant of work
never realised,
the centerpiece with
missed table settings,
yet eyes eat here
marble, stone and gold.

Tongues of different
races, come to taste
part of an architects
vision, to produce a
city of spires, on an
Anglo-Venetian seam.

Domed like Florence
it could have stood,
but with tower and
turret, deaf to the
sounds of Citadel life,
this obelisk to one man
stands, the candelabra
to God and Christ.

Ask not what you can do to poetry, but what poetry can do to you.

Pen and Sean
Thanks guys!

Pen this is more about Sir Christopher Wren than St.Pauls, he dreamed of a London of spires, but did not manage to finish his work. Then thanks to WWII more of his work was wiped off the face of the earth. Such a shame he died before St.Pauls was finished.

Thanks Sean, I have seen you on the 'other' site, you keep cracking me up, sometimes I feel like screaming at some off the people on there, but, I'm enjoyign the learning.

Thank you

Alex :-)

You are a talent! You used words to paint a picture comparable only to the works or Rembrant and Michaelangelo

Everyone P.S. Demeter
Thank you everyone for commenting, where did all you guys come from!?! I'm always being attacked from the rear, hehehehehe!!

Thanks again.

P.S. Demeter, I'm not to sure about Dickens, probably reminds you of London as you imagine it in his time, which is an image I love.
