To The Unknown Town 1

from by Steven C. Davis



I walked four-score around
The ancient town.
The doors were open the walls broken
And dust scattered upon
The ancient town.
The glory days are past
The ship has broken its mast
And beached here upon
The ancient town.
I disturbed the dust with my passing
Barely trod the surface
As I passed through on my way
To some place else, away from
The ancient town.
The sun beat down
A crown of neglect.
In beauty decayed
The ancient town.
Ancient and shrivelled, they watched me
From the doorways of
The ancient town.
I have been forgotten, but I never forget
The ancient town.
