Venice

Venice

Water and marble and that silentness
Which is not broken by a wheel or hoof;
A city like a water-lily, less
Seen than reflected, palace wall and roof,
In the unfruitful waters motionless,
Without one living grass's green reproof;
A city without joy or weariness,
Itself beholding, from itself aloof.

Great word play and subtle inference.
Was there a time when you doubted your talent? I think I found it in another poem. Very very good. Love it. H
Excellent Poem - thanks
