A repost is allowed on a slow Sunday evening no?
Tutmoses looking 'cross the Nile
saw your reflection on the water.
Cleopatra held Antony’s hand
and kissed it by your light.
Nero plucked his lyre
while you shined on burning Rome.
Did Mehmet gaze upon your face
atop the walls of Byzantium?
You shined that night
on Santa Maria
and when they came for Atahualpa.
Watched the Sioux ghost dancing
and the Mahdi pray outside Khartoum.
Cixi sat in her pavilion, drank tea and reminisced.
Did your visage ache the doomed
along the Volga that Christmas?
You saw countless Romeos
caress the breasts
of countless Juliets.
You shined on me as well tonight.
Am I one with the infinite?
