    TOUR, WARSAW, PRAGUE, BUDAPEST

    The castle stands patiently for centuries;
    We spend a moment, gazing at it.
    That wall knows countless kings and revolutions;
    We catch one familiar name, and turn away.
    Church and temple, clothed in dignity,
    May remind us, briefly, of their lofty message.
    People, their past reflected in their eyes,
    Bear or ignore our upstart stares,
    Perhaps preferring cameras to cannon...
    Sadness is here, and agony; joy, and content;
    For a blink in time we look, and partake,
    And do not understand.


Working...
