White Nights and Blue Moons

Two gates the silent house of Sleep adorn;
Of polish'd ivory this, that of transparent horn:
True visions thro' transparent horn arise;
Thro' polish'd ivory pass deluding lies.

    WHY WHY WHY DID SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LIBRARY GET REPLACED BY THE CURRENT CONCRETE MONSTER TUTT?!
