Among the ruins

Stone slabs worn smooth by eons of passing feet.
Steps that carried kings and captains, washerwomen and grubby-faced children.
Soaring pillars and ornate carvings; stately statutes, cloaked in marble, guard the entrance to a scholarly retreat.
Curved archways, balancing on ancient knowledge, frame narrow streets.
And among the ruins, the toppled columns, the winged figures, the whispers of homes and theatres and temples
The lives of mythical citizens echo
