The Mountain Kings

Long since mountain kings have built,
are their towers ground to silt.
Although well made and sturdy built
they sink as sand and river silt.

Tho grand their empires long had stood,
their all 'gainst time could do no good.
Tall and proud those kings had stood,
but mortals were, tho' fair and good.

Now their abodes are high green farms,
ploughshares yet reign, no call to arms.
Atop once-tow'rs rest now farms,
the kings interred in alpine arms.
