I quite like Doric
Apart from the fluting
That annoys me
And the entasis
Corinthian is a bit, you know
Unnecessary with those acanthus
And composite is a ghastly mish ~
What were you thinking Trajan ?
Ionic is sublime
Slender columns topped with
Simple scrolls
As clear as Aphrodite's brow
As ineluctable as syllogism
Each column concealing a nymph
Syrinx slender frozen stone ode
Take me to the Erechtheum
And the temple at Sounion
At midnight to cool my
Mind in smooth marble
