massively impressive

The Cologne cathedral
is massively impressive—
so big that it was begun in 1248
and not finished until 1880!

And it confronts you aggressively
as you exit the Cologne main train station.

My girls, who are wont to treat our church at home
as their personal playground,
looked at the “Dom” wistfully,
“Oh, to play sardines in there!”
