A place of hallowed silence,

built upon holy ground.

It is the echo’s of Golgotha,

in the marble that can be found.

Graceful stone gazes, can be seen all around.

 

There are tombs old and new,

some so anchient they’re lost to time.

Their silence is truly deafening,

all will meet their end; the sacred and the fine.

Frozen and impertinent beauty, it’s another sign

.

So many stories this place can tell,

built beyond our time and reach.

Lost, life, even history,

so much these statues could teach.

Listening beauty in the silence, if you can hear their speech.
