Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Monuments to Highness and Hero

King Stephen’s land and monasteries

Of vales of nightshade by the trees

To Orders abolished and Abbeys ceased


Monuments of a town come to be

From a small hamlet by the sea

Migrant workers came for liberty


To revolution, iron ore industries

Building ships for Royals and Admiralties

To skilled worldwide expertise


 All traces of glorious histories

That have been throughout centuries

A story to be told of local dignataries
