A graceful lady

** a graceful lady **
The slender lines and curves attract
Draw the wandering eye
And how the dome is shaped
And pinnacle atop
Makes you think could cup this shape
In palm enclose those sweet slopes
Each dimension in elegance
Foretells the next and reinforces previous
Clean unadorned lines supreme
Glow of warmth from within
The vestibules give cheery welcome
To wander about within
This Victorian structure where first sat
Australian parliament upon federation
Lace work of iron and frescos modern
A symbol of a former colony's resolve
To be stronger better standing alone
Leaving shadow and grasp of dominion law.
