"The classical hero Aeneas has just abandoned Dido, his long term lover, in order to build the foundations of what would one day be the famous city of Rome."
This is thirtieth piece out of a collection of poems whose the titles come from the traditional gifts that are exchanged by couples for each year of their wedding anniversary.

A world so large, still our souls feel caged.
