Pillars

it is addressed thusly:
A fragment.

it reads:
Let it be said of us
That we gave ourselves
As pillars;

Sunk into the Earth to lift
Those who came after us.

But not such pillars as adorn
That carry an awning or porch
A facade;

But instead as the four columns
Which make a court-yard.

  1. Standing erect, straight,
    Unmoved. Deep into the earth
    Our pillars grow roots.
