Original Poems

Florence Tower

The Florence Water Tower
The Florence Water Tower

I drove one day through Florence
And I saw an ancient tower
Constructed first from stone
By (I assumed) some Tuscan power

Active in fabled days of old
When empire had fallen;
And now, this aging structure left
Shot through with summer Pollen

And rhapsodized on foreign scenes
The matchless panorama:
Then realized that I drove that day
In Florence, Alabama
