Dublin’s Trinity

books in trinity
Oh what providence to meet
with philosophers and poets.
White marble silent sentinels
standing at Baroque chapel entrances
where Trinity holds
200,000 ancient texts.
‘Tis the mind of Dublin–Trinity–
barrel-vaulted brain center;
210 foot Long Room.
Two stories–
told in tranquil reverence–
one of intellect, one of soul.
Guardian of light and ancient harp,
Boru’s fabled instrument.
Vibrant Celtic symbols
of inscrutability.
