Sempiternal Keeper Of The Watch

Amid the grace of quiet stones, a stroll down pebbled path. There within a forgotten time, behind an iron latch. Stands now in aged seclusion, of monuments to grief. A countenance in marble cast, beautiful Angel in soft relief. Heavenly comfort emanates, a coronal healing swath. Winged guardian to souls now passed, sempiternal keepers of the watch.
