If fire strengthens, and smelts foreign rock
While twisting scraps make stronger building blocks
Old is bolstered, and with new united

New fragments fill the many chinks and cracks
Inside the bell towers and chimney stacks
By storm and fire they instead renew
Taller and annealed by determined true
