Mesmerized by Marble

“THE MARBLE NOT YET CARVED CAN HOLD THE FORM OF EVERY THOUGHT THE GREATEST ARTIST HAS.”

Michaelangelo

Just another variety of a rock, some might say-

Not quite, I would beg to differ any day

To me, a piece of marble does symbolize

Virgin beauty, pure, without a vice

A sculptor’s dream, an architect’s delight

Fashioned into the world’s most breathtaking sights

Chiseled into statues, inlaid with stones precious

Modeled into hallways and courtyards spacious

Marble, to every building provides grandeur

Its pristine whiteness imparts unparalleled splendor

Taj Mahal would not have acquired its fame

Had it been made from a rock of some other name

Formed over centuries under high pressure

Marble is a true gem, our earth’s unique treasure.
