Georgia Places: Madison

I’ve never lived here, had not traveled
Here before this just last year,
And wandered in by accident while
Trying to get to somewhere else (but poorly)

“The world is my idea,” I’ve read,
But I had no idea all this was here:
This courthouse, so preserved, so bright,
And streets with rows of antebellum homes

And which each set of eyes would see
In different ways: the light of history
Casts different shadows seen
From different vantage points
