NEGLECTED BEAUTY

NEGLECTED    BEAUTY

Beauty-mica granite sidewalks shining 
Fontanka and Moika  Canals  like Venice boreal
Boats  flopping, tourist cameras aligning
Gold-domed  architecture monumental 
Kazan cathedral  needing  facelift, declining





Notes :

(SPB = Saint  Petersburg,  Russia )
Almost all sidewalks in SPB  are granite
There are many canals in SPB, and these two are more famous than others
Kazan is only one of several lovely cathedrals in SPB
