Each day thousands of visitors walk the same path…
as we did, to reach the Colosseum.
Nearly two thousand years ago
Romans were walking these steps.
I wonder will any of our sporting venues
will last as long…even as a ruin.
I kept this one till last as it was emphasized, by our guide,
that this stone paving was originally set in place
when the Colosseum was built, nearly two thousand years ago.
