Cracks

the marble walls,

once so firm,

have shifted

out of place and tilted

lack of care

no further grace

no hand to plumb

the once smooth face

has drifted

once a temple

held together

four strong walls

against all weather

cracks

they do appear

between the mortar

and the stone

now in age

weathered walls

bear the testimony

of years gone by
