purbeck stones

SultryRose's Signatures 

old London was built by purbeck stone
Sir Christopher Wren was well in tone
with Westminster abbey and old Big Ben
they took those stones and carved them then

From purbecks tide with surfing foams
they cut those famous Portland stones
from purbecks hills and countryside
made monuments to greet a bride

the work was hard and hours long
with only sweat and warblers song
with noble brows and knightly gaze
they shaped those stones to be amazed

now those stones stand so proud and tall
with royal hearts and regales halls
the purbeck hills still call to man
where seagulls nest above the sands
