After inserting the Gherkin at the end of “Now here is something to marvel at…“, I had a whim to write a poem for each season featuring an architectural icon. I have yet to follow through on this idea, but “The Character Building” (posted this time last year) re-engaged with landmark structures.

Like “Now here…“, the poem “The Character Building” is actually about the everyday and picayune that is often passed over for the dazzling and iconic.
