#WRITEPHOTO – TOWER

The Tower – KL Caley
For visually challenged writersthe image shows a tall circular tower with arched windows covered by metal bars. There are trees to the left and a ruined archway to the right.

Old castle stood on rugged slope
British Celts, Romans, Jutes and Gauls
They used to live here, kings or pope
Moonlit snowdrifts piled against walls

Half ruined walls, their windows dark
Day and night of howling mistral
People come and stare, this landmark
Moonlit snowdrifts piled against walls

Castle crumbles in slow motion
Tell-tale signs of weathering falls
Centuries of history spun
Moonlit snowdrifts piled against walls

Old castle stood on rugged slope
Moonlit snowdrifts piled against walls*
