ATHENS :: gift to the gods

Time builds all and ruins all.
Civilisations rise like marble towers,
Walled cities and carved temples
Stretch up to the gods,
Spread across for the men.
City of marble stairs and
Grandiose gifts
From men to gods,
From humanity to immortality.

A walled jewelled city
On a seaside mountain.
Marble reflects piercing sunlight
Across its domain.
From there nothing is hidden,
A white expanse stretches into obscurity,
Remnants of theatres and temples
Bow at its feet.
This was a place for the ancient gods,
Rising triumphant, standing proud
Even after millennia.
