Minnesota Capitol Building

The seat of government is physical.
When comes the time to build a capitol
Designs all tend to turn to classical.

With domes and arches meant for regal show
Of Greek and Roman architecture frills,
Where stone and marble decorations go
Upon the walls, the floor, and window sills.

Where all the shapes and forms are geometrical,
Aesthetic possibilities are practical,
Resulting in a building that is magical.

Then gild the topmost cupola in gold,
And any other spots where it’s allowed,
Providing classic statement that is bold
To make the residents of this state proud.
