Splayed wings
Splashed colour
Spread across this
our framed finalé

Antiquities window
through which peer
far flung offspring
of today’s choices

Faint voices
flutter, fade
Wistful whispers
in wisdom’s chamber gallery

Stranger sadly sighs
Eyes double glazed
Gazes through pane’s
displays from bygone days

Nymph now lays
prostrate in case
as our children assess
the slain monarch
