The Roman influence brings me to life,
I am celebrated, forthcoming too!
Astonished in my nature? Play the fife,
Or ring the bells, let’s play the interlude.
Yet, I feel as though there’s something damnèd
In my presence. Will great fortune spare me?
Methinks I can’t resist this fate. Scorchèd!
The fires consumes me whole! Dead I’ll be!
But nature has its ways, I’m back again;
Celebrated in my new body – please,
Don’t forget again, don’t forget my pain;
But the trains went away and my life-lease
Is done; now phantoms walk within my frame,
And haunt my mem’ry with their storied fame.
