Walking in the park

I came across a hero

Perched atop his marble horse

His copper turned to blue

And though I read his name

I knew not much about him

Save for those who loved him

It mattered not the hue

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Inspired by a statue I saw on the Boston Common during my latest visit to Beantown.

Terry, I'm so glad I came across your poetry page via the Random Feature Poems section today. You write with such a straight-forward, yet poetic, style and I enjoy that very much. This poem, "Copper Turned To Blue," is wonderful! I'll be back to read more of your work. Helen
