More marble in Danby

Seems there’s enough for a while
Deep below Danby Vermont
Countertops for kitchens, family gatherings
Appointed gleaming floors, lobbies
Hallowed halls for whom we serve
But the best pure white
Sliced precise forty two by 13
Four inches thick, markers, names
Rows, dress right, dress
Ready, front!
Some cry, how long?
How many more?
How much more marble in Danby?
You may not wish to know…

  1. Beautiful words, Tom. The names on that marble, their sacrifice.
