Ring, ageless silence!
Sing, stone and glass!
Awe moves within me;
In a moment, a lifetime has passed.

More vast beyond dreaming
Than all I have known;
My life loses meaning
When compared to the life in this stone.

Walls arch in challenge;
Stone soars in song;
Glass dares the heavens.
Outside Time, she will stand twice as long.

My heart thunders vainly.
My first steps in her halls
Steal my soul with stained glass wings,
And her stone owns me, body and all.

Longer than the world, she’s stood,
Placed in Time by sainted hands.
Stone made strong by bone and blood.
Knowledge in dark chambers stands.

All I would die for
Tolls through this stone.
Life beyond dying
Makes hope ache like song in my bones.

I sing ageless silence,
And I cry knowledge vast.
I’m hers past untying;
My role for forever is cast.

Forever means nothing in my maiden of marble and glass.
