  1. What do you mean, “unlikely”? You don’t believe that gargoyles will turn into a dragon once the walls crumble?

    Than why do you think they are smiling?

  2. “Unlikey” as in, an extraordiarily creative mixture of ideas and images.

    I certainly didn’t mean to suggest that it’s unlikely that lizards turn into gargoyles..or that it’s unlikely for gargoyles to turn into dragons. Once these transitions are suggested, then their truth becomes self-evident, as with so many other things..

  3. A new usage for me; I always limited “unlikely” to mean “improbable”.

    The poem is very much in style (and belief) with its medieval imagery. Not of the original kind, maybe more with Pre-Raphaelites.
