The Stone Wall- Poem #6 For Prompt HAlf Marathon by Ingrid Exner

Beyond the courtyard and

beyond the gardens

Lay the wall of stone

that is hardened.

Fashioned of stone, blood,

sweat and tears,

It is a monument of

many past years.


Just beyond this ancient gate

the real world is in await.

Time moves forward and people

Run in haste with very little

time to waste.


But back behind

that gate of stone,

the spirits of ancient times

still roam.

Captured behind

a wall of stone

They exist in memories

all alone.
