under smoothest stone engraved
the lines and structures keenly gave
by learned hands and skillful feet
that, in tireless toil did daily meet.
stone unyielding gently wrought
to sculpt a place in which each thought
to God
surrendered
in exchange
for peace.
beneath this upright roof,
between these steadfast walls
upon the cold yet flat firm floors
lies one whose
very lifeline lay off balance.
a train off the trails,
a tree’s branch bent
by the weight of child’s play.
as deformed as his spine
was the mind of him who lies
among cathedral’s glory
