Once there was something wonderful here

shadows still remain

Satyrs echoes came to reign

‘though ash of mirth still retains.

Once mystic creatures caroused here

Dancing spirits in the gloom

Dead now, but still entrancing

Demonic in this new-guards age.

Once, I was pure, and strong

Gods watched and guided every step

Great masters held my hands

Gorged great hollows from my spine.
