Castello

Solemn prayers echo from castle walls
looming above lake like tragic fate.

The midday shade offers little comfort
so far from the trees.

Oh pale parchment, oh lake of fire,
your brief memory follows here!

I am the penitent and I hang
from the neck like a star.

Each echo your voice as I kneel
in the cool of your breath.

Bells above toll with the time
counting hours with a name.

Solemn prayers echo from castle walls
looming above lake like tragic fate.
