Rebecca

A solitary woman holds a small 
urn jug
Her gentle hand clasped to her 
breast 
Shy eyelashes caress her pale 
stone cheeks.

Standing for centuries before 
us...
Guarding the cobblestone way.
How many eyes have set 
themselves upon this fair lady? 
Decay and corruption have not 
yet possessed you.

O gentle woman who guards 
the fountain at her feet. 
Quiet, still, at peace. 
You conceal the stories of man 
in your heart. 
I am a mere mortal to come 
worship at your feet.
