Palace of Versailles

Palace of Versailles
By Addison Callahan

Walls painted in rich deep green,
floors made of marble white,
flowers strewn in windowsills,
vases of purple night,
Hangings of a garnet red,
A place unlike any other it is said,
a mythical palace of unstifled dreams,
where nothing is just as it seems,
Statues seem to come alive,
Everything that is grown there will always thrive,
A rainbow of all colors are the flowers,
that adorn all the castle towers,
when you are there you cannot help but to stop and stare,
A smell of sugar is everywhere,
the time is reversed the day is night
but still you will find no more beautiful a sight,
As you go to leave you turn your eyes,
to see the beauty that is their sunrise,
the rising sun blinds your eyes,
then you wake up to your surprise,
this place was only in your dreams,
Nothing was really as it seems
