Let us consider the humble brick,
So many long by so many wide, just a couple thick.
Stuck to it’s neighbor by mortar and sweat,
Guarding the house from sun, storm or wet,
Part of your wall and mine,
Silent sentinel, recorder in time,
Old as the hills…..Older than mans’ way,
Made of pure history……..God’s own clay!

Hey my old've been greatly missed
around here fellow. Someone reported that
they thought they had seen you wandering
around the castle grounds and then disappeared
into the woods. I merely comforted them and said,
'He's contemplating his next great poem.'
'Consider this..'
I was right.
