To The Unknown Town 3

from by Steven C. Davis

lyrics

Her Doric columns tumbled,
The ancient kingdom reduced.
“I was once what you held dear,
But by time was I seduced.”

Aged by weather and wisdom
As the world passed her by
She sank into poverty
Never more to catch your eye.

Her pride remains in the stones
While her streets have become the beach.
“I am falling now but once
Was not out of reach.”
