Abandoned Windmill

I feel the intensity of your pain,
As I have prayed for years in vain;
For the windmill in my university lane,
Which stands abandoned to be slain.

What a view she would present,
If made to whirl at the wind's current;
Instead she's attired in a rusty vestment,
Standing majestically to be extinct.

This is in response to 'Broken Windmill' by Ms. Marilyn Lott.

    Your description of an abandoned windmill is beautiful. They are so treasured no matter how many years they stand or what condition they are in. '10! ' my friend!
