The Vatican Trail

Walk from the Via del Corso
past Saint Peter’s
enter the Vatican
and the crowd surges like thick water
along the long, long corridors
and then eddies in the Sistine Chapel.
When the murmur swells to a babble
the crowd is shushed by sombre men
who direct the stream out of the chapel
and down the spiral stairs.
