On the waves of time

The restless waves

Frozen in the land,

waves of earth in headlong flight.

Now a resting place

for old forgotten heroes,

safe in the hands of Gaia.

The stark hand carved walls,

a labour for so many,

now washing over them,

providing the peace they sought

in the green relentless tide.
