If I built this fortress...

As I returned across the fields I'd know
I recognised the walls that I once made
I had to stop in my tracks amazed
That these were stones that somehow I had laid!
And if I've built this fortress then how and when
The circa I’m not sure of but then again,
Just let me build it higher yet
Let every stone on stone be set
And have these massive battlements extend.

I’d like to build this fortress with all my heart
Increasing and extending walls to build it higher
And then climb up and stand alone
The wide expanse beneath my feet
And let me see the work of my desire.
