The Temple of Mormon

it reads:
Standing dull, sun cloud oe'r blown
A gray ghost of a sentinel
Loom is the word, and how
With angel's brass - did risk
And not sculpted this six-obelisk
As theos of old, but now
Lidless, leering, unelemental
With no light of its own?
a postscript is here written:
This structure overlooks the Capital Beltway (interstate 495) north of Washington D.C.

    I used to drive by this every day. It's actually much smaller than it looks (behind those trees is a hill, on top of the hill is the temple). Still, it reminds me of Disneyland. Sad, I know.
