Marble

This lady is dead but never born.
She lives in a cold old testament.

The lady is veiled, pure and dead
From a piece of Italian mountain,

Dead as the marble of her maker
Who lost marbles to proud death.

All old things go cold as marble,
Making death rather extra proud.

(Veiled Rebecca is a beautiful marble statue ,made by an Italian sculptor Benzoni, based upon her Old Testament character . The statue is found in the Salar Jung Museum in Hyderabad )
