Classical



Unchanging but forever new
A compliment to the old
Refreshing presence amongst the dull
Possessing histories untold
Unaware of expiration
For it soars unabound to time
Is treasure to the uniform
To replicated sight; sublime
True to existence of it's own
Embellishments aren't in need
When now is desolate, and the future too far
A classic will forever precede
