|Cities of Gold by J. Binford-Bell|
Castle of Gold
High on the canyon wall
it hides from all but the sun
looking down on the valley floor
Cities of gold
made of mud and rock
built by peoples that wore no armor
who thirsted for water
Castles without moats or kings
sheltered by the cliffs and canyons
glowing golden in the evening sun
from enemies and history.
