St Paulís, Stoneycroft, Liverpool

From here the spire
reaches upwards.
No matter the shade of the sky
it lives to fill the sky
with other than colour.

From here is seen age
and sage-like decorum.
A fortified shell, keeping out,
as well as keeping iní
elements that are housed and now beat down upon you.

The wonder is that you have
been there longer than the address
has existed, Yet close up
youth, newness and function dumbfound
