Our Wonderful World: The Leaning Tower of Pisa

Details of my Poetry Month Project can be found here.


A Note From the Architect

I didn't mean
for my tower to lean --
my work is usually not sloppy.

At least I know
that history will show
my creation will never be copied.

A note about the architect: there is actually controversy about the architect of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Imagine that. No one made sure to leave concrete (pun intended) evidence that this mistake was his.

Be sure you go over to Carol's Corner and read her poem about the Hagia Sophia from yesterday. Wow.

Kevin used a Google tool to make his Leaning Tower poem today. It's atKevin's Meandering Mind.


  1. Yep, I remember this NPM project of yours Mary Lee! Glad this little poem found another place to plant itself. :)

  2. I remember this poem, too, Mary Lee. In all of its imperfect state, the Leaning Tower has become a landmark. How's that for being imperfect in stature!
