Rome, Italy

I, Caladrius; 10,000 seasons I have wept and rejoiced

Over 7 hills, one city

Ascending over dusty cobblestones and The River Albula

Vespasian builds a Colossus, Peter builds a church

Millions of souls from the Lupine mother

Live and die in baths and markets and Fora

Worshipping Sky and Sea alike

Cheering in the Circus

Enchanted by poetic Virgil and Ovid

Shedding tears at a Gothic fall

And celebrating a Renaissance rise

Now, as I drink from The Fountain under a Pantheonic gaze

I wonder where the majesty has gone

But, lifting my eyes…I know

Rome still heals
