The museum is full of wonders
Egyptian grandeur, ancient glories,
glittering gold and precious gems,
classical Grecian curves and lines,
ever thoughtful, express the divine
illusive time, slowly passing.
Medieval kings, Viking shields and iron swords
delicate work of Saxon silver,
celebrating natures grace,
reflection of a faerie glen
My eyes become so tired of looking.
My feet ache from hard stone floors.
Passing through the Celtic collection
a tiny treasure catches me,
grips me, shackles fast my steps.
I long to hold it,
feeling it belongs to me,
smoothed in the hollow of my hand,
so small, so pure, so simple,
so emotional and loving,
no more than a pebble,
two lovers intertwined,
eternal, sweet embrace.
