I built a very splendid


With an onion dome.

I took coloured sand with me,

So the steps I fashioned,

Up to its gate,

Could be covered with red (pink) carpet.

I took green sand for the patches of grass on its ramparts,

And blue for the water that gushed 

From an underground cavern

Into a rock pool.

An architectural extravaganza.
