The Tomb of Ignatius

Here I am not that Cleon celebrated in Alexandria
(where it is hard to astonish them)
for my magnificent houses, for the gardens,
for my horses and for my chariots,
for the jewels and silks that I wore.
God forbid; here I am not that Cleon;
let his 28 years be erased.
I am Ignatius, a reader, who came to myself quite late;
but I lived so for ten months
happy in the serenity and security of Christ.
