The pool at the centre of the Victoria & Albert Museum reflects the façade behind it.
A magnet for children to dip their toes in,
but a grey day in February
seemed to tempt no one.
The circular pond echoed
Romanesque arches of windows and doors,
though classical friezes with semi-naked figures
belied the low temperatures.
Still, a good spot to consume a mini-picnic,
