Sub Rosa

 

In those tangled threads of gold

she has conceived a key,

in stories long since told,

in the electric codes of cities,

 

sub rosa, wrapped in ribbons,

she stands by St. Pauls dome,

hers the more secret realms

of inner wisdom and imagination

for she is our unknown.

    Profound poem Antonia:
    “hers the more secret realms

    of inner wisdom and imagination

    for she is our unknown”

    Ah! these words give me me warmth.
