A once-Auguste palace
Become a shelter for the beautiful,
The days of sovereigns tick along,
Up to, but not beyond, Louis.
By the spirit of Égalité
The Citoyen is welcome in a royal garden
Where the mighty Helios ignites daily
Man’s most destructive power.
From the stones of a fortress breached,
A Concord built to span the divide
From where the minds of men gather
To where their necks are severed.
