Passage (standard:poetry, 103 words)
Author: HAdded: Feb 03 2004Views/Reads: 1674/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A poem (yup, another one) about the passage of time.
 



Passage 

Walk the caves beneath the places 

Where cities used to be. 

Watch the falling streams of water 

Into mystery. 

Walk the places where once stood 

Wide and stately domes. 

Watch the ancient manuscripts 

Crumble to dusty tomes. 

Walk the places of the past, 

Which have become the here and now. 

Watch a world mighty and high 

Sink dark and old and low. 

See the ancient rivers 

That once so strong would run. 

See them dried and vanished by 

The centuries of sun. 

See the golden temples, 

Once so beautiful and proud 

As they fall under Time's blackness 

And beneath its bitter shroud.
