"A Sea of Steps: Stairs to Chapter House, Wells Cathedral"
by Frederick H. Evans, Platinum print, 1903

A Sea of Steps

I walk to Chapter House
at Wells Cathedral with
the columns rising high
like pipe organs soaring.

Archways beckon me
forward but the stairs
seem to be undulating
like a sea of steps—

Walking on waves,
floating on air I go
up, up, up
