The Face of Corinth



Night of broken pillars

scalloped limestone falls

amid scattered ruins


Corinth's torn scroll of art

all Greece lies buried

beneath this rubbled world


Blue-glazed slopes, rugged peaks

press against open skies

Aphrodite frolics in the vale


Temple of Apollo shards

open-air housing for the sun

Forum seats turn hard, cold


Gateway to Peloponnese

monoliths of lichened rocks

gulls spiral endlessly for food


Echoes down the vast canal

St. Paul's disquisition on love

measured diet of chiseled stone
