A cursory glance along your way
Was not that apparent initially though
No power cables straddling across
What could it really be?
It dawned on me, yes!

An iron sculpture in open space
For the public to see

Reminiscent of Paris
On a small scale

Could we then take it
Eiffel was a sculptor too?

  12. Alexandre Eiffel was a French civil engineer and an architect. He obviously had artistict talent. I think that all towers should beauty. Some do for those of who are or have been engineers. I will straighten a picture in a stranger's house if it is hanging crocked with the world.
    Nice 55 too!!
