Mason takes his hammer to the stone Deftly tapping there to find the marbled seam Slowly striking now, a single measured blow Fissure widening, the granite face revealed Ancient flower from the garden of the earth Igneous blossom newly opened to the light Gently cradled in the craftman's calloused hand Brittle edges trimmed with touch of tempered steel Practiced eye has deemed it worthy of the wall Flashing trowel spreads a furrowed mortar bed Firmly nested in the slaked limes' quickening hold Granite soldier on a long eternal watch There to stand the sternest test of storm and time Till mortar turns to dust And stone to sand
